Academics/Overview: At Okemo Mountain School we facilitate each student’s individual curriculum from his or her sending school. Our goal is to ensure that our students return to their
sending schools in sync with their classmates having covered all of the same material in the
same manner. Typically our students even return ahead in their coursework and with a deeper
understanding of the course content covered. To achieve this goal of seamless transitions between OMS and sending schools, all of our students’ curriculum plans are completely individualized. Furthermore students enjoy a low faculty to student ratio of one to two. We facilitate a wide
range of courses, including AP and college prep courses, foreign languages, and visual arts.
Okemo Mountain School’s faculty is comprised of many individuals who have taught at OMS for
more than years. Our teachers enjoy working with a variety of curricula and connecting with students individually. To best meet the individual student’s needs, our teachers provide enrichment
or remediation in addition to delivering sending school course content. Most faculty members
hold a Masters or PhD in their field of study. Our Dean of Academics is Leslie Cassano and our
Assistant Dean of Academics is Kate Foster.
