Pursuing a rigorous academic curriculum to enable entry into the college of preference, or remaining competitive at an elite level athletically or artistically, does not need to be a mutually exclusive choice. At Picabo Street Academy, students utilize technology-based learning coupled with high levels of support and supervision, as we provide a flexible, but highly structured student-centric approach to education. Picabo Street Academy students have proven that they have a high level of drive to achieve extraordinary results outside of school, and we help them channel this competitive drive into their schoolwork on a schedule that allows them to accomplish this successfully.
Our academic partner has been providing an educational platform to students for the past 10 years. At Picabo Street Academy, we supplement this course content with classroom teachers who work one-on-one with our students to provide the individual attention they need, whenever and wherever they need it. Students work together with our academic advisor to determine when, what, and how much they will study at any given time during the year to create their own, unique plan to graduation.
The enriched blended learning model allows students from anywhere in the country to “attend” Picabo Street Academy, and it also allows Park City residents to not only come to school in Park City, but also take school with them anywhere in the country, or world; enrollment is not limited by geography, performance schedule or passion. Although the blended method of education is already in use in many successful teaching institutions, the concept of year-round accessibility and individual, live support is unique, and together these concepts form the basis of the Picabo Street Academy model. This concept allows students to create their own, personalized schedule for academic success without compromising practice or performance during their passionate pursuit of excellence in their activity of choice.
When able to choose the time, place, path and pace of learning, students can maximize their performance potential without compromising their academic future. Picabo Street Academy offers course curricula, which meet and exceed national, state, common core and NCAA regulatory standards.
