Full Term Program

"My daughter's skiing and confidence improved so much this year—she made the most wonderful, salt of the earth friends, keeps up with all her classes, and her coaches are strong, effective, kind, and caring."
At SMS, we believe that students should not have to choose between excelling academically and pursuing their athletic dreams. 

With options for both boarding and day students, SMS combines our top-tier academic and athletic offerings with a full residential life to achieve our unique mission: to provide a unique environment that offers each student the opportunity to pursue excellence in competitive winter sports and college preparatory academics while developing strong personal values.

We enhance spring and fall terms to allow for a lighter academic load during the winter. And when our students qualify for competitions or elite training camps that take them away from campus, we make the best use of distance learning strategies to keep academics on track. Our college-preparatory curriculum provides a foundation of academic excellence.
