High Mountain Institute Semester
531 County Rd 5A, PO Box 970, Leadville, CO 80461
This semester-long program for juniors and a limited number of seniors focuses on experiential education, both in the classroom and in the wilderness. Students take five or six courses, one of which pertains to ethics in the natural world. Instructors assist pupils in making connections between what they learn in class and what they learn in the wilderness. Each semester, boys and girls embark on three two-week expeditions, with backpacking in the mountains and canyons, a community service trip and a winter trek during the spring semester being some of the options.
