Life at Sterling

Sterling College embraces the attributes that make it unique—small enrollment, rural location, field programs, and real work—and welcomes students to campus under a creative, multifaceted plan that values both the health and welfare of its students and the integrity and quality of the Sterling experience. 

 

Visit Sterling

You'll just have to see it to believe it

In a world where colleges, like big box stores, look increasingly alike, Sterling is unlike any other school in the nation. Which is why you need to visit.  Breathe the fresh, mountain air on our rural Vermont campus. Watch our draft horses at work and tour our woodlands, greenhouses, classrooms, and studios. Relish a farm-to-table lunch with Sterling faculty and students.

See for yourself that it’s possible to learn in a place where you can live your values. Schedule a visit now. (And wear your work boots.)
