School Life

Morning Meetings happen every weekday throughout the school year, and you can learn a lot about life at Steamboat Mountain School by dropping in on one of them.

People start to gather, boarders coming down from the dorms, day students getting dropped off by their parents, everyone coming together around the open, three-story, blond-wood interior of the Main Building.

They sit on couches or chairs or stairs or drape themselves over railings. Students, teachers, and staff offer announcements, updates, news of things on the horizon: the service trip that afternoon, the study session for the AP test, the meeting for film class, skiers results from competitions over the weekend.

Everyone knows everyone else: the community is close knit and involved, and there’s no shortage of things to be involved in. More than anything else, it feels comfortable. Whether you’re a day student or a boarder, this becomes your home away from home.

Here’s what you take away: Steamboat Mountain School is relaxed and informal. There’s no pretense here—people are comfortable being themselves. Students are serious about what they’re here to do, but not against having fun doing it. People speak up and say what’s on their mind. Everyone knows everyone else: the community is close knit and involved, and there’s no shortage of things to be involved in.

More than anything else, it feels comfortable. Whether you’re a day student or a boarder, this becomes your home away from home.
