Ways that Peak School can help support winter athletes:
7:1 student teacher ratio
Deliver a college preparatory education in Summit County
Fixed schedule structure that allows for minimal impact on afternoon training
Narrative based grading structure (In-line with schools like Burke Academy)
Proximity to Breckenridge, Copper, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, Loveland, Frisco Nordic Center, & Woodward at Copper
Dedicated to providing great communication between The Peak School and coaches
An academic program that allows the flexibility to personalize an educational experience, which allows students to take the level of class that is appropriate for them
Can potentially provide transportation once a critical mass of student athletes is reached
Have created a senior project curriculum which allows seniors to intern/create senior projects for the whole 3rd quarter of their senior year (No classes)
Use of Google classrooms that allow students to access course material and homework remotely
Teachers that understand the increased demands associated with the different tiers of ski racing
Peak is interested in pursuing a summer classes program to relieve pressures on skiers during the academic year
A healthy financial aid budget to help accommodate families that are a great fit for The Peak School
"As a full time athlete, I need a flexible schedule with super supportive teachers. Being at Peak has worked out great. My teachers all help me to succeed and help push me to do my best."
"The Peak School allows me to be confident that I can not only excel at competitive sports, but also keep up with challenging academics. Teachers help my school schedule work well with my nordic skiing and mountain biking career."
"Attending The Peak School has given me the opportunity to ski 6 days a week as a high school student. The constant support from my teachers motivates me to strive on and off the hill with my grades and my skiing."
