Squaw Valley Academy is a grade 9-12 California boarding school and day school in the beautiful Sierra Nevada near Lake Tahoe. We offer a rigorous academic program that emphasizes close interaction between faculty and students and focuses on each student’s individual needs.

We offer rolling enrollment, which allows students to enroll during the school year. International students enjoy full English immersion and attend regular academic classes with their American classmates.

Personal Attention

  • SVA students receive the personal attention that only small classes can afford. They also attend faculty-supervised, evening study hall every school night. SVA provides students with rigorous academics, AP Courses (Advanced Placement), SAT Prep & TOEFL Junior, ESL, college counseling, and the Academic Learning Center.

Outdoor Sports & Activities

  • All students participate in outdoor mountain sports and activities, such as mountain biking, rock climbing, skiing and snowboarding – though students must maintain their academic performance to do so.

Weekly Seasonal Activities

  • Each weekend, students enjoy supervised trips and seasonal activities such as rock climbing, swimming, skiing and snowboarding, or visiting museums, movie theaters, restaurants, amusement parks, and retail stores.
