SVSEF and The Community School Forge Alliance

FasterSkierJanuary 16, 2009

The Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation’s Nordic Ski Program and The Community School have joined forces to offer college preparatory education and competitive Nordic ski training to high school athletes.

Nestled in the mountain town of Sun Valley, Idaho, The Community School offers its students an intellectually challenging and supportive environment in a serene and majestic setting. The Community School’s record of college placement is excellent and the student/teacher ratio is low.

Under the leadership of 22-year coach Rick Kapala, the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation’s Nordic ski squad has become one of the top U.S. Junior Nordic programs in the country.

Combining the two programs will provide student athletes with world class Nordic training and exceptional college preparatory academics. “We have over 150 kilometers of the world famous Sun Valley cross country ski trail system in our own backyard,” says Head of School Andy Jones-Wilkins, “as well as the expertise of Program Director and Head Coach, Rick Kapala and his superb coaching staff.”

The Community School now has the ability to offer student/athletes the opportunity to take advantage of both programs.

“Very few students outside the Sun Valley area have the geographic proximity to a world class trail system, excellent academics and outstanding coaching. We are thrilled to offer all of this in a unique school setting.”
