Green Mountain College: Housing & Facilities

Experience campus life in a beautiful Vermont setting this summer.

Green Mountain College in Poultney, Vermont, is situated in southern Vermont’s beautiful lakes region, with the Adirondack Mountains to the west and the Green Mountains to the east. Poultney, once home to early settlers and Ethan Allen’s Green Mountain Boys, was chartered in 1761, and Green Mountain College was founded in 1834.

During its history, the college has taught a diverse liberal arts education, now focusing especially on environmental studies and finding itself at the forefront of a sustainability movement. An energetic institution in the most scenic of states, this college has been placed at the top of Sierra’s “Cool School” rankings and recently recognized by the Princeton Review for going environmentally green.

Academy students will live in dorms on the Green Mountain College campus, where they will also take classes, participate in cultural exploration activities and enjoy free time. The 155-acre campus, which is small, safe and self-contained, features an arts center, state-of-the-art fitness center and the first renovated residence hall in Vermont to receive a LEED gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Outdoor facilities include athletic fields, nature preserve with hiking trails and views of the College’s beautiful landscape and historic campus buildings.
