The Land

Embrace our Vermont home to cultivate students’ knowledge, love, and appreciation for the land through environmental education, winter sports, and outdoor programming.

  • Develop a place-based science and environmental studies curriculum and make full use of our campus as an extension of our classrooms and educational program.
  • Strengthen varsity winter sports through a player development approach that extends our knowledge of how students work and learn best.
  • Create a signature outdoor program that also includes summer opportunities.
  • Build a new schedule that promotes holistic learning through balancing academics, sport specialization, and exploration of outdoor activities.
  • Hire a Director of Outdoor Programs who will train faculty and staff to incorporate outdoor programming into academics and student life. 
  • Empower our environmental science educators to expand outdoor, place-based learning.
  • Invest in our coaches and leadership for varsity winter sports.
  • Restore and utilize our on-campus outdoor learning spaces including the arboretum, Bolles Pond, the sugarhouse, and the observatory.
  • Improve physical facilities and equipment for winter sports. 
  • Expand opportunities to support our outdoor programming vision, including establishing a footprint on the Connecticut River for rowing, fly fishing, boating, and place-based academics.
