Squaw Valley Academy, Olympic Valley:
Located in Olympic Valley (otherwise known as Squaw Valley), northwest of Lake Tahoe in Placer County, CA, Squaw Valley Academy is a college-preparatory international boarding school for grades 9-12 with Day programs available from grades 6-12. We challenge with rigorous academics, we support with consistent behavioral standards, we train in life-long sports, we provide outdoor adventures, and we foster self-esteem through real accomplishment.
Accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, Squaw Valley Academy meets the California state standards for middle and high school students.
Squaw Valley Academy is a California 6th-12th grade boarding school and day school founded in 1978 to offer a combination of college preparatory learning, outdoor education, and sports opportunities in the California High Sierra at Lake Tahoe.
SVA offers strong preparation for college as its central focus and many outdoor sports and activities as a catalyst for personal growth and achievement.
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.
All students participate in Outdoor Education that integrates the math, science, and humanities curricula outside the traditional classroom. If a student keeps grades up to standard, she or he may ski or snowboard daily at Squaw Valley USA, the thirty-ski-lift home of the 1960 Olympics.

Two separate residential buildings accommodate students and staff on-campus at Squaw Valley Academy. Students live in en-suite dormitory rooms or in off-campus SVA houses with SVA staff and other SVA students.
Each dormitory has washing machines and dryers, and students do their own laundry. Adult staff is on duty twenty-four hours per day in dormitories and off-campus SVA houses when students are in-house.
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.
