Blue Mountain School is a Contemplative Progressive educational community located in Floyd, Virginia. Blue Mountain offers programs for children in preschool to middle school including forest programs and summer camps.

Through the many opportunities to grow in these last few years, Blue Mountain School has remained committed to best practices and a deep commitment to essential social emotional learning that is the foundation to all learning. Accompanying this commitment is the awareness of the need for small class sizes and excellent teacher:student ratios. Our devotion to these pedagogical ideals is also a financial commitment; and we need your help. The operating costs of our programming has continued to increase, while our school remains committed to affordable education in our rural community.  Please donate today! Your tax deductible donation is essential to helping Blue Mountain School serve families and nurture the thinkers, leaders and problem solvers our world needs.

As a long-standing educational non-profit in the New River Valley, every one of our 42 years has offered opportunities for reflection and growth.  We’ve continued to strengthen our program, and remained committed to our Mission, Vision and Values. Some have called Blue Mountain School an educational oasis.
