Long Trail School

LTS features small-group instruction and maintains a family-like environment. Each student completes a common core of subjects in the disciplines of English, math, science, social studies and world languages during each year of attendance. Requirements also include participation in Arts Core, a two-year overview of the dramatic, musical and visual arts, and Connections, a multidisciplinary course that focuses on critical thinking and knowledge acquisition. A wide selection of Advanced Placement classes provides additional challenge, as does the two-year International Baccalaureate Diploma Program. All boys and girls perform at least eight hours of community service each year. The LTS community convenes for a morning meeting four days a week, and for three or four days each fall the entire student body and faculty participate in a team-building experience off campus that emphasizes cooperation, teamwork, trust and self-confidence. A limited number of students with learning disabilities enroll each year. International students in grades 9-12 may board with local host families.
