The Craftsbury Outdoor Sports Academy (COSA) is now accepting applications for the 2018-2019 academic year. After piloting the program in 2017, Craftsbury Academy and the Craftsbury Outdoor Center are continuing their collaborative academic and athletic venture and invite all interested students to apply, both within the Craftsbury Nordic Ski Club community and beyond.
COSA student-athletes have the opportunity to combine their Nordic ski training at the Outdoor Center with the academic program at Craftsbury Academy. The Outdoor Center provides coaching support through its existing Nordic programming and the Academy supports those goals by offering participating students academic flexibility. By providing a schedule that allows for specific, scheduled morning free periods and some longer-term accommodation for competition travel, COSA students have more time on snow to pursue training and racing goals in tandem with the Academy’s excellent public school curriculum. There are online class options and tutoring available to accommodate the times students miss regular school periods for morning training.
Students must be entering at least 7th grade to apply. For more information about COSA and how to apply, visit the COSA page:
