Founded in 1787, Castleton is the oldest college in Vermont and the 18th oldest in the country. With a foundation of more than 200 years of educating Vermonters, Castleton has invested over $75 million in infrastructure since 2002, giving our students the benefits of tradition on a cutting edge campus. With 2,000 undergraduate and graduate students, Castleton is small enough to be a community where individuals matter, yet large enough to offer a diverse and challenging curriculum with more than 30 academic programs. Forty student clubs and organizations, and 25 varsity sports help make Castleton a great place for living and learning. At Castleton there is an understanding of the need for both career preparation and a liberal arts education.
