VMS is the only independent K-12 school in Eagle and Summit Counties and we embrace the freedom this provides. Our rigorous, globally inspired, college preparatory curriculum readies students for challenges both in and out of the classroom. The experience is enriched by athletics, independent projects, service learning, in-depth Intraterm classes, winter hut trips, outdoor education, and Ski Fridays. We believe teachable moments are everywhere and we are bound neither by belief nor government mandate to teach in only one way. One size does not fit all, one size fits one.
Developing the ability to think critically was central to my experience at VMS. Whether the topic was art, geometry, literature, or even soccer, we honed our ability to think critically about the subject at hand, and more often than not, its broader implications. Alumnus ‘95
