World Class Academy Hood River, OR

Extreme sports tend to drive individuals to extreme measures. The typical word used by those that find their lives being taken over by their outdoor pursuits is “addiction.” Their sport turns into a lifestyle…. Their lifestyle a sport.

In Fall 2013 a private high school called World Class Academy will be offering a program for junior kiteboarders that want to travel the world and kiteboard, while receiving an education rooted in cultural immersion and hands-on learning.

“We allow our students to focus on what they love and to apply it in an academic environment where their passions and their education grow together,” says WCA Program Director Todd Anderson. “World Class gives our students a reason to be excited about school.”

World Class Academy is an accredited college-preparatory institution that accepts students in grades 9-12, offering a wide selection of core-classes that fulfill high school requirements. Students travel, train, and learn with their teachers and coaches who travel with the program. For Fall/Spring semesters, the school will travel to Hood River, Peru, Costa Rica, and South Padre Island. International destinations vary semester to semester.

“It is hard for some people to understand that we are first and foremost an academic institution,” says Anderson. “The kitboarding, the international destinations, and the travel get all the attention, but what we really do is provide an exceptional education for students who have similar desires and interests.”

“Imagine studying Incan history on the coast of Peru, Earth Sciences in the Pacific Northwest, Biology in the Costa Rican rainforest, and then to go kiteboarding after class with the top coaches in the sport…. This is the core of the program,” says Anderson.

World Class began in 2001 with a whitewater kayak program that traveled the globe learning and exploring the world’s most iconic rivers. In the past 12 years the program has visited 13 countries around the globe from Uganda to Nepal, China to Chile, all the while mixing extreme sport and education with travel and cultural immersion.

WCA is currently accepting applications for the upcoming 2013/2014 school year with the Kiteboard Program, which will start in August in Hood River, OR.
