Dorm Life

Dorm Life

For an all-encompassing education that fosters the best in scholarship, citizenship, and overall personal growth, there is no better option than a boarding school like Steamboat Mountain School. The school has offered a comprehensive residential program since 1957.
The boarding program creates and maintains an extended community, facilitating personal growth and developing significant life skills. The program proactively builds upon the school’s core values with the goal that all boarding students independently learn to manage their academic, physical, and social time, learn to live with respect, understanding, and tolerance of others, and develop an individual and resilient strength of character, preparing them to lead capably and confidently as life’s journey unfolds.

There are three alpine-styled residence halls. There are single rooms, doubles, triples, and even two quads in one of the dorms.  The living quarters are comfortable but not overdone, and each dorm has a student lounge with amenities such as a refrigerator, small stove, and television. Other amenities include a washer and dryer in each dorm, campus wide Wi-Fi, a ski and snowboard wax room, gym with a weight and exercise room, campus trails system, and a theater for live performance or movie viewing. On the weekends, the student leadership groups plan activities in and around Steamboat, as well as camping or trips to Denver.

Each dorm is run by a Residential Head and a Residential Assistant, who live in apartments attached to the dorm. Additionally, on-campus faculty and staff help manage the dorms, proctoring study halls in the evening and helping govern student activities during the weekends.
