The Many Shades of Ski Academies

The world is not black and white, and neither are the academic options for ski racers in North America. Ski academies originally came to shape as full-time schools that could provide learning options for serious athletes who often had extensive travel and training demands. They were established in the 1970s and 80s to help develop future national team athletes who also needed a high school diploma. In more recent times, however, ski academy models have evolved and expanded to accommodate a much wider range of athletes, academic needs and long-term goals.

Prep schools with competitive ski programs
When you hear the words “prep school,” images of uniforms and ivy-covered brick buildings possibly come to mind. In reality, college preparatory schools are so much more and several across the country enable ski racers to participate in rigorous academics and intense athletic training. The beauty of a prep school lies in its diversity of students and extracurricular offerings, providing ski racers opportunities to participate in additional sports or pursue an interest in arts.
