Sun Valley Community School was established in 1973. The first classes were held in the basement of St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Ketchum, with 30 students, three faculty members, and four volunteers.

Today, we are a pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade day and boarding school with more than 385 students in pre-kindergarten through twelfth grades and more than 100 faculty and staff.

From those early days in the basement of St. Thomas, we have grown to thrive across three campuses: the Trail Creek academic campus; the Ketchum Campus, which houses our boarding program, Athletes' Training Center, and campus hub; and the Dumke Family Sagewillow Campus, the site of our playing fields, Air Barn, and Outdoor Program.
