Thank you for your interest in Carrabassett Valley Academy. I am starting my eighteenth year as the Director of Admissions . When I talk about CVA’s college preparatory academics and the quality of our athletic programs, I speak as a parent as much as an administrator, as both my sons graduated from CVA and went on to Williams College and Middlebury College. So I understand well the parent and student perspective. I take the time to ensure that you have all the facts about CVA and that I learn what’s important to you academically, athletically, and socially.

I invite you to come experience us in action for a day. We’ll tour the facilities; meet with the coach, director of academic planning, and the assistant head of school; sit in a class; and then go on the hill with the team. You'll end the day knowing all about CVA and whether this place is a fit for you and your family.
We also provide financial assistance to about half of our students, so there is financial aid available for eligible families. Through the admissions process, we examine term options and financial aid opportunities to ensure that tuition is manageable.  

Email me at or call me at my direct line 207-237-4466. I look forward to speaking with you.
