Those that thrive at HMI are better prepared for the college experience. They know themselves, they understand how to live and work with others, and they learn to take effective risks. These are certainly skills I would want my college bound students to have in their toolbox.

HMI & Your Sending School
Accredited by The Association of Colorado Independent Schools, HMI works with public and private schools from around the world. HMI strives for a smooth transition between academic classes in Leadville and those at our sending schools. Students and teachers complete questionnaires in math and Spanish prior to the start of the Semester in an effort to meet the need of their sending school curricula. Year-long courses, such as US History, follow similar trajectory to sending schools. Many students report being ahead of their peers when they complete their HMI Semester.
While HMI has had students attend from hundreds of schools nationally and internationally, you may not find yours in the map below. If that is the case, please contact the admissions office as most schools support students in attending HMI. We are happy to speak with your school and discuss the curriculum, our credit exchange, and more. You may reach us by phone, 719-486-8200 x1, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
