Home / About LTS / Head’s Welcome


Welcome to the Long Trail School community!  You are warmly invited to come visit us, now through this website and we hope soon in person.  

Our status as Vermont’s first IB World School offers but a tantalizing clue to the extraordinary learning and teaching here. Even citing our rigorous college preparatory academic program, or our robust arts offerings, or our competitive athletics, would still not fully capture this singular place.  

We proudly talk of our mission, core values, beliefs and honor code – and we strive fiercely each day to walk the walk!  Our students come from dozens of communities in Vermont and New York – and from nations around the world.  In any way in which diversity of thought or practice can arise, our school community embraces it, as we unite around our confidence in human reason and creative understanding, commitments to ethical engagement, and reliance on one another and the capacity – and responsibility – of each of us to make a difference and repair the world.  

We here at Long Trail School, as students, faculty, staff, families and volunteers, look at ourselves not only as members of a school family but as stewards of the future.  Come see for yourself – we’ll leave the light of our shared tomorrows on for you.


Seth Linfield
Head of School
