School Notes:

WHO WE ARE Carrabassett Valley Academy is a private middle/high school at Sugarloaf Mountain in Maine offering a unique balance of college preparatory academics and competitive ski and snowboard training. OUR ADVANTAGES We are the leader in delivering programs that enable students from 7th grade to Post-graduate to obtain a rigorous college preparatory education while pursuing athletic aspirations. It’s a time tested integration of academics, athletics, and community providing a framework for students to become confident, independent, and advocates for themselves. OUR EXPERIENCE For 30 years we have been nestled in the western mountains of Maine. We have earned more Olympic medals for skiing and snowboarding than some small countries and have graduated student into the most prestigious colleges and universities and prepared them to be responsible, caring citizens who know the value of hard work and commitment. OUR PHILOSOPHY CVA is more than a school; it is a way of life that is shaped by the ruggedness of the terrain and environment. We create an experience not found elsewhere, an experience that creates growth, opportunity, and choices. A full-on academic, athletic, and community experience that is life-changing. OUR APPROACH We are student centered. We tap into a student’s passion for skiing/snowboarding, love of the outdoors and willingness to work hard. We use that passion to help a student achieve his/her personal best with the goal of creating the strongest high school resume, so upon graduation, he/she has the most post-secondary academic and athletic choices
