Postgraduate Program

The SMS Postgraduate (PG) program provides student-athletes with the opportunity to train and compete in their sport in an elite, structured environment before moving on to a college or National team.
Most often, the PG program is an athletic endeavor only. Our postgraduates are highly competitive athletes who train and travel for competition throughout the fall and winter.

The typical postgraduate student-athlete has earned his or her high school diploma and aspires to obtain a National Team nomination or earn a place on a college team.

For more information regarding the Postgraduate Program, please contact Admissions Director Jim Sullivan (802-856-1124).

List of 2 items.

  • Athletic Component

    Throughout the seven-month program, athletes will train with our experienced coaches at Stratton Mountain School, and travel to venues throughout the US, Canada, and Europe for additional training and competitions. Each athlete will have full access to our campus, including our US Ski & Snowboard High-Performance facilities; Greg Needell Strength and Conditioning Area, Simpson Center for Action Sports, and tuning areas. 
  • Optional Academic Component

    The postgraduate academic component is the ideal program for a student-athlete who is looking to enhance his or her academic record alongside an advanced, sport-specific training schedule. Postgraduate students either enroll in a full schedule of SMS classes, audit 1 or 2 classes or utilize The Henrich Library as a quiet place to attend online college courses
