The Orme School

Private Boarding School – Mayer , Arizona

The Orme School is a co-educational, college preparatory boarding school located on a rustic 300 acre campus surrounded by a 26,000 acre working cattle ranch. Life at Orme provides positive and healthy choices within a framework and philosophy proven successful since 1929. The school enjoys year round ideal climate with cool evening breezes from surrounding mountains and is protected in a snug valley from cold winter temperatures. Enrollment is limited in number in order to preserve a family atmosphere and a close relationship between teachers and students. A student-centered academic program is combined with a wholesome outdoor life that stresses responsibility, earnest achievement and genuine opportunities for balanced growth and development.

Facilities
Orme has a planetarium, multimedia rooms, outdoor classroom, science laboratories, a greenhouse, photographic darkroom, computer center, art studios and a music room.

Sports and Arts
In addition to top academics; athletic programs include baseball, basketball, football, tennis, track, and volleyball. Orme also maintains an outstanding horsemanship program (Western, English, Hunter Jumper, Rodeo). Students can join programs in outdoor leadership, cheer/dance, drama, choir, band, yearbook, and an Annual Fine Arts Festival.

Dormitories and Student Life
Dorm life offers a comfortable respite, time for hanging out with friends, catching up on homework, listening to music, and learning each day how to take responsibility into one’s own hands. Adventure and fun are found right outside your own dorm room, from Friday night Frisbee games to star-gazing on nearby mesas.
