About Sterling College
Founded in 1958, the College was a pioneer of the idea that neither the narrow technician nor the uninformed idealist alone can address the issues facing humanity and is one of only nine federally recognized work colleges. Sterling’s transdisciplinary oriented faculty of 18 serves a student body of 125 residential students on its campus in Craftsbury Common, Vermont, and our instructional site in Port Royal, Kentucky. While the College is poised for growth in the number of programs and the population of students it serves, we are intentionally one of the smallest residential colleges in the nation and view our 7:1 student to faculty ratio and small classes as important strengths.
