The White Mountain School offers sport climbing during each of our three athletic seasons, fall, winter and spring. Our school's team participates in the USA Climbing American Bouldering Series (ABS) in the spring, with a regular circuit of competitions in the New England region. We even hold our own USA Climbing-sanctioned events right here on our campus on our 3,500 square foot climbing wall and bouldering cave. We have one of the most robust climbing programs of any boarding school, or high school in the country, and we are most proud of our ability to serve athletes at any level, from the novice to the most serious climbers.
The sport climbing program meets outside of the regular sports meeting time after school so that interested team members may also practice their skills and gain experience in our outdoor recreational rock climbing program, with several different groupings by ability level.
Our school's culture is one that embraces students who love outdoor sports. At many schools, climbers are an exception in the general population. At our school, they are very much a norm. So if you're looking for a place where you'll be challenged, supported, and celebrated for the sport you love, we might be the right school for you!
