Life at Sterling in COVID-19

Sterling College is embracing the attributes that make it unique—small enrollment, rural location, field programs, and professional studies opportunities—and welcoming students back to campus for the Fall Semester under a creative, multifaceted plan that values both the health and welfare of its students and the integrity and quality of the Sterling experience.  We are committed to offering an authentic Sterling experience, even in the time of social distancing.  Read through how we’re addressing new challenges with bold solutions that benefit our whole community.

You'll just have to see it to believe it

Sterling is unlike any other school in the nation.  We breathe fresh mountain air on our rural Vermont campus.  We work with our hands and harvest materials from the land.  We eat every meal in community. 

See for yourself that it’s possible to learn in a place where you can live your values. Schedule a Virtual Tour today to watch our draft horses at work, tour our forest, greenhouses, classrooms, woodshop, and award-winning kitchen.
