Athletics and physical activity are an essential part of any complete educational program. In recent years, there have been numerous studies demonstrating that physical fitness has a profoundly positive impact on mental acuity and the ability to learn. At Squaw Valley Academy Bay Area we are lucky to have both an inspiring environment and a climate that allows us to indulge in a wide variety of sporting activities throughout the year. As long as students maintain academic and behavioral standards, they are encouraged to engage in daily athletics of their choosing.
