DISCOVER THE OUTDOOR ACADEMY!

A semester experience like no other…

OA is a fully-accredited semester boarding school for 10th and 11th graders nestled in the heart of North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains.

Built upon our four cornerstones of Intellect, Craft, Environment, and Community, our  honors-level curriculum integrates wilderness experiences, environmental education, and creative arts.

At OA, your classes will be small and personal, your academic teachers will also be wood carvers and rock-climbing experts, and your new classmates will become lifelong friends.
