FAQs about our Boarding Program
Where are you located? Well, funny you should ask. We are in Sun Valley, Idaho and one of only two boarding schools in Idaho and one of the few boarding schools in the Rocky Mountain West. We have mountains, rivers, endless mountain trails, lots of sunshine, and a community of thinkers and doers and makers.
What do you do in Sun Valley, Idaho? Sun Valley is the birthplace of ski racing in America, so yes, many people here are passionate about logging vertical feet in the powder or crushing the gates. But there's so much more to Sun Valley. We have arts and culture to rival many metropolitan areas; our small community has hosted the likes of Sir Salman Rushdie, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Michael Chabon, and David Sedaris in recent years. We have a growing film festival, and we have a world-renowned summer symphony. We have four amazing seasons that invite—almost demand—you to get outside and play. Full disclosure? We don't do a lot of couch surfing here. But everyone needs some down time every once in a while!
What's life like in your dorm? It's like your second home with lots of extra siblings. The food is great. The suites or "pods" are spacious and comfortable. The staff is reliable, relatable, and here to make sure you have a safe, fun, and worthwhile experience here.
