Welcome to Community School Admissions
We're so glad you're here.
Community School is an independent pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade day and boarding school in Sun Valley, Idaho. We provide a vibrant college preparatory education enhanced by outdoor and experiential programs that make the most of our unparalleled mountain setting.
Our daughter spent a day visiting Community School with the idea of transferring the following year. She arrived home eager to start right away. For us the appeal of the outdoor program, arts and science was a huge draw. It was a very welcoming environment when we joined the school; even coming in part way through the year, we stepped right in.Miles Canfield, Current Parent
Community School does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, religion, origin, ancestry, physical disability or sexual orientation. Nor do we deny admission to applicants whose families cannot afford tuition.
Katie Robins joined Community School in 2000 and has served as Director of Admissions since 2005. Katie loves touring the campus with prospective families and learning their stories. "There is nothing more satisfying than watching that aha-moment a family has when they see this campus in action and begin to envision their own children as members of this incredibly engaging and nurturing environment," she says. "I love guiding families through this process and helping future Cutthroats find their new home."
Katie holds a BA in communications from the University of California, Berkeley. She and her husband, Guy, are parents to two Cutthroats: Sam '30 and Sophie '32. In her spare time, Katie loves to cook for friends and family, rock climb, and is an avid reader of fiction.
