Okemo Mountain School
Nestled in the picturesque Vermont ski town of Ludlow, Okemo Mountain School (OMS) offers a unique life experience and unparalleled educational opportunity for motivated student-athletes. Okemo Mountain School is a winter term academy for alpine ski racing, snowboarding, and freestyle skiing athletes who wish to train full time in their sport without compromising rigorous academic study. Unlike many other snow sports academies, OMS remains entirely focused on meeting the needs of winter term participants. OMS welcomes applicants entering the 5th-12th grades with a desire to achieve their personal best both academically and athletically.
At OMS, student-athletes spend their mornings training on the slopes of Okemo Mountain, which generously provides multiple training venues and exceptional opportunities. The athletic coaches at OMS encourage and push each student-athlete to pursue his or her dreams of success. A low coach to athlete ratio allows for much individualized attention during on-hill and off-hill training sessions.
The academic teachers at OMS are dedicated to following the student-athletes’ individual sending school curricula with the goal of keeping them right in step with their peers. Many student-athletes even return to their sending schools in the spring more successful academically than they left in the fall. This unique dedication to individualized curricula is also a distinguishing factor for OMS amongst other ski academies.
Countless academic and athletic success stories, coupled with the smiles on our student-athletes’ faces, speak to the significance of spending winters at OMS. Are you ready to explore the opportunities that await you at Okemo Mountain School? Contact us today!
