The Storm King School is celebrating 155 years! Nestled atop Storm King Mountain in New York’s scenic Hudson Valley, SKS welcomes 175 college-bound boarding and day students in grades 8-PG from 25+ countries. Our educational approach is highly individualized and project-based, and many classes occur outside of the traditional classroom walls. SKS is best known for our renowned faculty, competitive science/math programs, far-reaching humanities programs, robust arts, and both championship and no-cut sports.
The Q-Term is a short, intensive course that provides Storm King faculty and students a chance to explore more deeply subject matter for which they have a particular passion and curiosity. It is a mutual quest for knowledge, outside of the regular weekly schedule and usually, outside of the classroom. Examples: rocketry, animation, forensics, improv theater, leadership, escape room, project gratitude, fashion, Appalachian Trail, robotics, songwriting, investment strategies, mural painting, and more.
