Our integrated school model provides student-athletes with the tools to succeed both on the ice and in the classroom. Each grade level has dedicated classroom time at the rink with teachers working on-site in our two classrooms: the Collaboration Room and the Focus Room. The Student Lounge is a flexible space where students can study between practice, workout and class.
