Student Life

At Yestermorrow you will find a friendly, hard-working, engaging, and creative learning community. Outside the classroom, mealtimes and off-hours provide an opportunity to interact with students in your class and from other classes, as well as with instructors and staff. The discussions and professional networking that occur outside of the classroom are an added bonus and often reported to be as beneficial as the classes themselves.

The Yestermorrow campus offers educational opportunities as well, with demonstration projects, mechanical systems, and examples of student work providing insight into everything from joinery techniques to solar hot water systems, and from daylighting options to strawbale building methodology. You’ll also find a school that is living the design/build philosophy, with a growing and evolving campus.

While Yestermorrow classes are intensive and don’t leave students a lot of free time, the campus offers options for activity and entertainment. The school library is open 24 hours a day with a large selection of books, periodicals, and videos. In summertime, the surrounding woods offer quiet getaway spots, and in the evening students often gather around the fire pit or in the kitchen for an impromptu jam session. The lawn outside the main building is frequently host to games of soccer or Frisbee. The campus hosts trails to explore year-round. Along the nearby Mad River there are many swimming holes to enjoy, stunning vistas, and great recreational opportunities abound.
