The CS Difference

SCHOOL IS DIFFERENT HERE.

We are a community of curious minds, adventurous spirits, compassionate hearts, and critical thinkers who engage in learning and connect as people in the thriving mountain community of Sun Valley, Idaho.

Community School students come to know themselves and one another on campus and in the wilderness, finding joy and growth through academic challenge, outdoor experiences, artistic endeavors, and athletic passions.

At Community School, you will:

  • Be known and inspired by faculty committed to connecting with you and supporting your passions;
  • Find meaningful academic challenge through engaging classroom and experiential learning;
  • Connect with your community through Outdoor Program experiences that allow you to push past your comfort zone and develop skills practical and profound;
  • Earn the confidence to share your ideas and effect change, among your peers and in the wider world;
