When nature and minds meet...

Ambitious, motivated students attend the High Mountain Institute to connect with nature, develop as leaders and critical thinkers, and discover learning at its best. They are here to make the most of their educations. Our programs prepare adolescents to take risks, collaborate with peers, communicate with people who hold diverse perspectives, and build trusting relationships. For many of our alumni, the decision to attend an HMI program was the most important educational choice they made during their lifetimes. When nature and minds meet, extraordinary academic and personal achievement follows.
