Not Your Typical Summer School

When most kids hear the words “summer school” they cringe. Not one teenager wants to spend their summer stuck inside of a classroom, solving for “X” and writing book reports about “The Catcher in The Rye.” They would rather be with their friends, enjoying the warm weather and creating memories that last a lifetime. But what if summer school didn’t have to be so dull and boring? What if you could move one-step closer to graduating without having to sacrifice hanging out with your friends? Well at Windells Academy that is exactly what we offer.

Our students have the best of both worlds! They get to spend all day hanging out with their friends, riding with the best pros in the world, creating memories they’ll never forget AND they are still able to complete their school work. With our flexible on-line schooling, students are able to complete school in-between activities. Our staff is on hand 24/7 to help ensure that students comprehend and complete all course material.

And our schooling goes beyond the classroom. Students will learn new tricks and tips from the best professionals in the industry and have access to three private terrain parks, Oregon’s best indoor and outdoor skateparks, two high-speed quad chairlifts, four surface tows, four BagJumps, two mini-pipes, and North America’s only Olympic-sized 22’ Summer Superpipe, which serves as the summertime Olympic training facility to the U.S. Snowboarding team and all major contending countries around the world. So the next time your child hears the words “summer school” we hope that they beg you, to let them go.

  2. Are there scholarships available?
