After-School programming is in full swing and we are excited for the 2023-2024 school year!
We are planning ahead for Summer and welcome your questions and early planning.
After-School sessions run every day that school is session. 3:30pm-5:25pm, Wednesdays 2pm-5:25pm.
Summer Sessions run every day from 8AM to 5PM, and our goal is to serve families who need us full-time. Plan with us for full days, experiential learning, lots of time in the outdoors and some great trips!
We also offer experiential full-day trips on days off from school and holiday breaks.

The Mountain School vision
To encourage students to learn in and connect with our mountains, rivers, and wild places. To create a community that promotes time for children to explore and lead their own learning. To maintain an academic, mindful approach to adventure and field studies.

Discovery and Learning
We love to punctuate Summer and After-School with a variety of lessons, learning targets, and mindful moments.
The experiential education model has become popular, and I can say with confidence that we practice hands-on-learning with an emphasis on Teachable Moments. Being outside in a variety of settings is a huge opportunity to engage with students.
