Participation at Local Schools

One of the things that is special at Snowline Academy is that students may still participate in activities at their local schools.  Middle school students may join before and after school clubs, attend dances, participate in the band and chorus programs, and be part of special events, like the 8th grade Washington, D.C. trip.

Family Time

Many students enjoy the flexibility of our program, which allows them to complete schoolwork around family activities, travel, athletics, hobbies, and according to their personal schedules and pacing.
