Admissions Welcome
Stratton Mountain School is an exciting place to learn, compete and grow. Our community of students, teachers and coaches work in harmony towards common goals: excellence in college preparatory academics and winter sports, and the development of strong personal values. At SMS, you will find an energized community of about 120-125 students, prospering under a remarkable 4:1 student to faculty ratio. If you see yourself benefiting from and adding to an environment where hard work, commitment and intellectual curiosity are the norm, then we strongly encourage a campus visit. The best time to schedule a visit is during the winter months.
