Academic Strength

Perri Meeks


“I set high goals for myself. I wanted a school that wouldn’t sacrifice academics and that had a ski program where I could be successful as well. I came to Steamboat because it offered a great education that worked well with skiing.

I feel like I’ve learned so much, not just academically, but how to be part of a community. There’s so much love in this community—that’s one of the biggest things for me.

Steamboat Mountain School provides every student with the best opportunity to thrive. It sets everyone up for success. It has definitely shaped me into the person I am now.”
