The Outdoor Center provides coaching support through its existing Nordic programming and the Academy supports those goals by offering participating students class scheduling flexibility. For students in 9th grade and up, it will allow for specific, scheduled morning free periods and some longer-term academic flexibility for travel. Participating students will have more time at the Outdoor Center to pursue their training and racing goals, while still participating in the Academy’s excellent public school curriculum. There will be online class options and tutoring available to accommodate the times students miss regular school periods for morning training.
To assess each applicant's readiness for a more focused athletic program that will also require good time management and academic diligence, please complete the following questions as comprehensively as you can. We value your input as someone who knows your student in an academic context.
