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.
