North American Hockey Academy is located in Stowe, VT. It is a private, special program emphasis school that serves 37 students in grades 9-12. North American Hockey Academy is all-female and is nonsectarian in orientation. The school belongs to the State or regional independent school association.
Dedicated, top shelf academics and athletics. Questions? Look at the matriculation list to the Ivy League, NESCAC and Hockey East's best schools. This school is not for everyone. Teachers are carefully selected, as are coaches. It is fast paced, competitive and demanding. But its record speaks for itself.
NAHA is not a place for children with feelings or a desire to learn. Coaches regularly ridicule students on their personality and athletic "flaws". I was horribly unprepared when I went to college in about every area besides being able to play hockey. I had to find my college on my own with little to no help from my coaches and the NAHA staff. Once at the school for after a week it is clear that coaches and staff pick favorites. Usually those with extreme confidence (to put it nicely) and who arrive at the academy already at the top of the pack. If your child fits any other mold than I highly suggest looking else where if you want happiness, academic development, and a college acceptance letter.
