Schlereth was raised in Anchorage, Alaska, where he was born. As a child, he struggled with dyslexia and did not learn to read until he was seven. In 1984 he graduated from Robert Service High School.

Growing up in Alaska, Schlereth was not a very sought-after college football prospect; at the time, only Idaho (I-AA) and Hawaii offered him a scholarship. Dennis Erickson, the head coach of the University of Idaho, offered him a scholarship, which he accepted.

As Erickson left after the 1985 year, Schlereth began playing left guard on the offensive line for the Vandals under new head coach Keith Gilbertson, assisting quarterbacks Scott Linehan and John Friesz.
