Mountain Sun Community School exists to inspire generations of engaged learners and compassionate, responsible citizens. Our school nurtures each individual child as they awaken their unique passions, and we hold a loving, respectful space for them to fully realize their own identity as a learner and a person. Mountain Sun offers inspired, holistic education that develops each child’s mind, body, and spirit and helps them express who they are and want to be in a dynamic world.
Our primary purpose as a school is to prepare our children to be engaged learners and compassionate, responsible citizens of the world. We nurture curiosity and passion for learning at the same time we cultivate each child’s sense of care for each other and the world. Ultimately, the pursuit of knowledge and discovery in this manner leads a child to utilize their gifts to become positive contributors to their communities. This is what we mean when we refer to “holistic education.” At Mountain Sun, we serve the whole child’s developmental needs: cognitively, naturally, creatively, emotionally, and socially.
Mountain Sun Community School’s mission is to cultivate each student’s natural curiosity and love of learning through a challenging academic curriculum grounded in mutual respect and a sense of belonging. We recognize each student’s unique potential and nurture their passions and abilities through a balance of direct instruction, collaborative and independent study, hands-on experiences in and out of the classroom, and service learning.
“Kids with dreams become adults with vision”
The Mountain Sun Community School Pledge
I am only one,
But still I am one.
I cannot do everything,
But still I can do something;
And because I cannot do everything,
I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.
