Founded in 1962, Vail Mountain School was established for the benefit of the resort's first employees' children, allowing them to spend almost as much time on the mountain as in the classroom. Fifty years later, VMS still combines recreational ski days with a unique blend of progressive and traditional education ideal for college-bound students, and is known as much for its academic rigor as its magnificent location.

Co-curricular programs take full advantage of the school's surroundings in the community of Vail and the White River National Forest. Located 100 miles west of Denver, VMS provides flexible programming for aspiring snowsport athletes committed to a college preparatory education.
