Unique, Challenging, and Focused

Stratton Mountain School offers a unique, challenging and focused curriculum that encourages students to maximize their learning in and outside of the classroom and to use their time efficiently and effectively as they navigate their academic and athletic goals. Our courses are carefully scheduled for each student to succeed as a scholar while pursuing their goals outside the classroom.

Students at SMS enjoy average class sizes of ten students, which allows for personalized attention from teachers and individualized approaches to classwork. The SMS curriculum is built around supporting the travel of winter sports athletes. In the winter, classes are conducted in the afternoons, and only core courses (English, math, science, history, and foreign language) are taught during this time. All teachers develop and maintain a robust web-based curriculum, with access to both assignments and teacher feedback easily accessible to traveling student-athletes. All core classes are NCAA approved for students who intend to pursue college-level athletics. 

The SMS curriculum has been carefully designed to assure the strong foundation of knowledge and skills that have allowed our students to excel at the most challenging colleges and universities in the country.
