Welcome to the
Mountain Stewardship and
Outdoor Leadership School

Mountain SOL is an educational non-profit focused on nature awareness, stewardship, and youth-led leadership. We offer in-school classes for students at our partner school, Morgantown Learning Academy, and afterschool and summer programs available to all local students. Our classes are more than just lesson plans taught outside. They are engaging, fully immersive experiences that emphasize passion, personal responsibility, and leadership.


“At Mountain SOL we seek to guide the next generation
on the path of building a more just and resilient Appalachia.”


We operate in a close symbiotic relationship with our mother school, Morgantown Learning Academy.  MLA is a non-profit, secular, private school for children from preschool to eighth grade.

We are very grateful to the following programs that support, mentor, and stand in solidarity with our mission statement:

We are able to offer first aid certification for our Mountain Medic program through the support of our friends at the Herbal Medics Academy / Human Path. Our Jags paths were also largely influenced by our mentorship from Sam and Suchil. Interested in taking your wilderness medic skills to the next level? Learn more HERE.

We are supported in our staff education and resources through the support of our friends at Commonwealth Holistic Herbalism. Check out their classes, podcast, blog, and sign up for their e-mail newsletter!
