Our staff and faculty believe self-esteem is enhanced through real accomplishment in the academic, athletic, and social aspects of life at a boarding school.

Location:
Squaw Valley Academy is a safe, clean campus nestled in a valley at the edge of the Tahoe National Forest and within five miles of Lake Tahoe. Our campus is located two miles from Squaw Valley USA, the six-peak, thirty-ski-lift site of the 1960 Winter Olympics. The Sierra Nevada provides the ideal location to support our commitment to real accomplishment and personal achievement through Outdoor Education.

The campus of the Academy extends beyond its buildings and into the outdoor world of the Sierra Nevada. The environment surrounding the campus holds as much potential to learn and to accomplish as the bookshelves of the indoor classrooms. Together, academics and the outdoor world provide a balanced education.
