ABOUT THE NSA
The National Ski Academy (NSA) is a non-profit registered charity established in 1986 to provide an environment for student athletes to maximize individual potential through the pursuit of alpine ski racing excellence, academic achievement and personal growth. In 2010 the NSA became a Ministry of Education inspected private school, granting high school credits in Grades 9 to 12.
Our home at 200 Oak Street in Collingwood, Ontario, Canada provides the facilities necessary for Canadian and international alpine athletes to pursue their ski racing dreams. The renovated 12,000 square foot Tornavene mansion offers classrooms, study hall, a gymnasium and weight room, tuning room, boarding for up to 35 student/athletes and a kitchen with a full time chef.
For 30 years, the NSA has offered integrated Academic/Fitness/Ski Racing programs with boarding as an option. These programs have helped to develop Ontario Team and National Team ski racers and many of the top coaches in the country.
In addition to elite ski racing programs, the NSA prides itself on its comprehensive academic programs and “education that travels”. NSA graduating students have achieved a combined average of 84% over the past five years and gained acceptance and scholarships into some of the top Canadian and US universities.
Why We’re Unique
The National Ski Academy’s mission is to “provide an environment for talented student athletes to maximize individual potential through the pursuit of alpine ski racing excellence, academic achievement and personal growth.”
Delivering on our vision is only possible through a holistic approach that caters to all the needs of young student/athletes.
Our holistic approach builds outward from individual student needs to address three core development areas; Academics, Fitness and Ski Racing. Our winter home in Collingwood and our summer home in Saas Fee Switzerland each provide the full breadth of facilities and professional coaches, teachers and trainers needed for our young student/athletes to prosper.
The NSA is the only high school credit granting ski academy in Canada that provides this holistic program for student athletes.
