Racer Ready for Life

For over 30 years the National Ski Academy has benefited from the generous philanthropic support of families and friends. Without this commitment NSA would not be what it is today. Tuition alone does not cover the costs to operate NSA annually and donations are vital to make up the difference, as well as, respond to urgent campus needs and emerging priorities to meet our mission 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.”


Achieving this mission demands the entire NSA community’s support to succeed.


The  Annual Appeal will ensure that NSA not only continues to offer its unique and holistic approach, but enhance all of our program areas, and offer an enriched, robust and leading education that supports our young student athletes to realize their full potential and prepare them for success on the ski hill and for the future.


We are asking all members of the National Ski Academy’s community to support the school’s Annual Appeal. Your participation is critically important and will make a meaningful difference in the experience of all our student’s, and ensure the longevity of the Academy.


The 2018-19 Annual Appeal raised more than $246,000 with the Class of 2019 donating $80,000!


Donations to the Annual Appeal can be directed to the following areas:


Board of Directors Fund – Gifts to this fund are strongly encouraged, allowing the Board to direct donations to the highest priority areas of need.


Programming (academic, athletic and wellness) and Professional Development  – to enhance the academic, athletic and wellness programs through the purchase of items such as senior science equipment, robotics and coding supplies and programs, gym equipment, as well as supporting broadened professional development to ensure top notch teaching and coaching.


House and Infrastructure  – Tornaveen, our 12,000 square foot historic mansion and home at 200 Oak Street in Collingwood, Ontario routinely needs maintenance, upgrades and repairs, standard necessities of a majestic home of its generation. Currently it needs a new roof, attic insulation and brickwork repairs. Gifts will also support Information technology upgrades and boarding operations software.
