SVSA College and beyond

Sun Valley Community School prides ourselves in our successful college placement program which focuses on our student-athletes’ collegiate educational and athletic aspirations. We have a long history of placing our skiers and snowboarders at their best fit colleges or universities around the world.

Our two full-time dedicated college counselors work together with each student-athlete and their family to help guide them through their college application and exam process, and help ensure that our course selection is NCAA approved. 

While we are incredibly proud of our student-athletes who go on to compete at the NCAA level, we are equally proud of our student-athletes who compete at the USCSA level, or step away from competitive skiing to focus on their collegiate lives. With a 100% college acceptance rate, and 80% of our student-athletes attending their first choice college or university, Sun Valley Community School consistently proves that well regarded by colleges around the world.

Sun Valley Community School was very helpful in steering me towards schools that were both academically challenging but also offered an opportunity for me to continue ski racing competitively at an NCAA level. CS has such a wide base of alumni that it was easy to connect me to other people who graduated from Middlebury, which helped me decide that Midd was the perfect place for me to continue my academic and athletic career.
