The High Mountain Institute has something for everyone. Located high in the mountains of Colorado, our programs inspire personal and intellectual growth through real experience. The mountains and canyons are our classrooms. We invite you to join us.
The HMI Semester offers 11th grade students the opportunity to focus on rigorous academics and leadership skills as part of our close-knit community on campus in Leadville, Colorado and on three wilderness expeditions in the Rocky Mountains and Utah canyons. Expand your horizons, prepare for college, and make life-long friends while participating in an unforgettable part of your high school experience. Learn more
The HMI Summer Term offers 10th, 11th, and occasional 9th grade students an opportunity to combine wilderness, community, and academic pursuits in a six-week summer program, giving students a taste of the semester school experience in a more condensed format. The Summer Term also includes our signature leadership development curriculum, which allows students to develop their own leadership skills and style in a fun environment. Learn more
We created the High Peaks Adventure to give 7th and 8th graders a fun introduction to HMI and to the wilderness experience. This two-week program includes backpacking, whitewater rafting, rock climbing and more! Learn more
