Academics

Students are often forced to choose between academic success and a future in elite sports and arts.  At Picabo Street Academy, these are not mutually exclusive choices.

At PSA, students pursue a personalized, technology-based education with hands-on mentorship, supervision, and instruction. In this flexible yet structured environment, students complete their schoolwork on a schedule that complements their training and competition.

Over the past 15 years, our curriculum partner has mastered the delivery of web-based education and we supplement their course content with classroom teachers who work one-to-one with 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 throughout the year to create their unique pathway to graduation.

The student-centric, enriched blended learning model allows students from anywhere in the country to “attend” PSA. coal and distance students can come to school in Park City and 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 used at top teaching institutions, PSA’s combination of year-round programming, one-on-one mentorship, and access to Olympic training facilities is unique. When students choose the time, place, path and pace of learning, they can maximize their performance potential without compromising their academic future.

Picabo Street Academy offers course curricula that meet and exceed national, state, common core, and NCAA regulatory standards.
