We learned about Squaw Valley Academy when my Freshman started at a very competitive public High School. The large class size and tremendous academic demands became overwhelming by the second month of school. An obsession with grades and tests scores replaced sports and many social activities. Another ...  Read more

I have a unique perspective of SVA. I attended SVA from 1999-2001 for middle school.

In 2005, I answered ...  Read more

I pride myself in no longer teaching for Squaw Valley Academy. They only care about the number of students and tuition, the focus is not ...  Read more

The school, though it has a well crafted mission statement, is poorly administered. The food is poor and the organization by admin is frightening; there is no planning for daily outdoor activities--it was always at the last minute, thrown together by the staff with poor direction from admin.

Most of the teachers don't even know how to teach. The staff don't watch the kids enough. I would not reccomend this school if you want your child to succeed in life and get a good education.
