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.
The PG program is typically an athletic endeavor only; however, our PG students are offered the opportunity to audit courses during their time at SMS. Our postgraduates are highly competitive athletes who train and travel for competition throughout the fall and winter.

The typical postgraduate student-athlete has earned their 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 our Admissions Team (802-856-1103).

List of 2 items.

  • Athletic Component

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

    The postgraduate academic component is the ideal program for a student-athlete who is looking to enhance their academic background alongside an advanced, sport-specific training schedule. Postgraduate students either enroll in a full schedule of SMS classes, or audit 1 or 2 college classes online.
Stratton Mountain School is an independent boarding and day school that focuses on college preparatory academics and competitive winter sports. Located at the base of Stratton Mountain, SMS is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools.
