The Ford Sayre Academy is nationally recognized for its unique quality academy-style program integrated with a public school. Academy athletes are dedicated ski racers aged 14 or older (U16 and U19 athletes) who are interested in pursuing ski racing at all levels. Athletes may opt to train either after school, weekends or full-time. Full-time athletes arrange their academic schedules so that they are dismissed at 11, allowing them to travel and train during the day. The FSA full-time athlete is required to keep up with his/her missed academic classes by hiring a tutor. This allows the student/athlete to achieve the highest individual academic and athletic goals. Racing calendars are dependent upon individual athletic goals and competitions are available in State, Regional, National and International races.
