From Squaw Valley Academy

As Head of School, I am honored to work with such an outstanding group of people. Each teacher and dorm staff embrace the life-style commitment necessary to serve our students in a residential environment. Our teachers serve as role models, who help our student go beyond themselves. I believe in our school mission of combining rigorous academics mixed with training in lifelong sports to foster self-esteem through real accomplishment.
Accredited by the National Independent Private School Association and Advanced ED, our college preparatory curriculum provides classes which allow each student to achieve academic success. Personal attention and tailored academics are the basis of success for our students.
The average class size of eight encourages each student’s commitment in the learning process. Students who need extra assistance can be helped in our Academic Support Center, while our 15 Advanced Placement courses challenge students with college level material.

    SVA has a beautiful campus in close proximity to many outdoor recreational opportunities for the students. The skiing is fabulous The academics are rigorous and prepare the students well for college. As parents, we are very impressed with the administration and the support they offer students and families.

    There are basically two types of kids admitted to this school. Struggling American students and wealthy foreign students. It is an interesting mix, but sometimes it seems overwhelming to have both groups ther.
    The school is small and unique in its setting. So many great activities for the students. The very diverse student body has already changed my son into a person with a global perspective. Loved the staff. Very supportive yet fairly strict environment. My son said he had the time if his life there.
