Sun Valley Community School is a pre-k through twelve nonprofit independent school in Sun Valley, Idaho. We strive every day to instill in our students a sense of wonder, a love of their surroundings, a thirst for knowledge, and a passion for life.
Our students span two to 18 years of age, and our curriculum adjusts to meet their various developmental needs. For our Upper School students, grades nine through twelve, we combine a rigorous college preperatory program with an in-depth Outdoor Program that teaches students the value of leadership, risk management, and preserving wild spaces. Middle School students, grades six through eight, learn responsibility and good study habits as well as outdoor skills, setting them up for success in the Upper School. Our Elementary School students learn the importance of compassion and commumity service as well as basic academic and outdoor skills. The Early Childhood Center is founded on the Reggio Emilia philosophy, which allows teachers to create curricula around the students’ natural curiosity about the world around them.
