Welcome to Castleton!
With a history stretching back to 1787 and extensive modern facilities for sports, science, and the arts, the Castleton campus draws from the strength of our traditions while living solidly in the present. Nestled in a scenic New England village between two mountain ranges, we enjoy easy access to some of Vermont’s most beautiful terrain.
