WHO WE ARE
Carrabassett Valley Academy is a private middle/high school at Sugarloaf Mountain in Maine offering a unique balance of college preparatory academics and competitive ski and snowboard training.
CVA is more than a school; it is a way of life that is shaped by the ruggedness of the terrain and environment. We create an experience not found elsewhere, an experience that creates growth, opportunity, and choices. A full-on academic, athletic, and community experience that is life-changing.
MY CVA - OUR CVA
In keeping with our philosophy, we have developed My CVA - Our CVA. The CVA story has been written by many people. Whether you are a student, weekend program parent/athlete, employee, alumni, parent, donor, or Sugarloafer, you are contributing a vital thread to the fabric of our school. Your CVA has built Our CVA, and Our CVA is a place of which we are all proud. We are stronger together!
We are student centered. We tap into a student’s passion for skiing/snowboarding, love of the outdoors and willingness to work hard. We use that passion to help a student achieve his/her personal best with the goal of creating the strongest high school resume, so upon graduation, he/she has the most post-secondary academic and athletic choices.
We are the leader in delivering programs that enable students from 7th grade to Post-graduate to obtain a rigorous college preparatory education while pursuing athletic aspirations. It’s a time tested integration of academics, athletics, and community providing a framework for students to become confident, independent, and advocates for themselves.
For 30 years we have been nestled in the western mountains of Maine. We have earned more Olympic medals for skiing and snowboarding than some small countries and have graduated student into the most prestigious colleges and universities and prepared them to be responsible, caring citizens who know the value of hard work and commitment.
