While he explores hiking trails a few days
each week – after all, they are just minutes
from campus – his best discoveries at
Squaw Valley Academy are about himself.
He learns to snowboard and skate, playing
net for the SVA Hockey team. He falls in
love with the precision of jewelry design.
He finds he is a natural teacher, and tutors
other students in Spanish.
He leaves SVA a more complete human being;
a young man who truly knows and accepts himself.
