Mike Slinger, Head of School
It is such a pleasure to be a part of the Coast Mountain Academy team!
Coast Mountain Academy is a university-preparatory school and was founded with the goal of creating a culture of curiosity while providing a world class education. We offer not only a rigorous academic program, but a well-rounded arts, athletics, and outdoor education program. Our engaging classrooms take full advantage of our rich natural environment, while fostering sound academic skills in communication, critical thinking, creativity, and collaboration.
The Our Kids review of Coast Mountain Academy
As the name of the school suggests, place is an important aspect of the life of CMA. One of the founders, Toran Savjord, had served on the executive of Quest University, and the impetus for CMA is an expression of the same goals, namely to create a school that is an expression of the community and environment of the region. Outdoor education is understandably a part of that, though so is the approach, one based in cross-curricular instruction, making connections between the arts, sciences, and the culture of the sea-to-sky corridor. The founders have aimed high, and the school, though still young, has attracted students of a similar mindset. The ideal student is one who is looking for a different approach to learning, and who will thrive in a creative, active, cooperative learning environment.
