Torrey McMillan, chair of White Mountain School's Sustainability Studies Department, talks with the Boarding School Podcast about the department's origins and its role as a featured experience in every White Mountain student's education.

The board initiated, five year old program requires every student to complete a theoretical course and an action course within the sustainability curriculum. Woven through the White Mountain School curriculum, the program strives to give every student an entry into sustainability- its practical, economic, social, and environmental thinking- through an area that interests them.
