Your journey begins here

Thank you for considering Tahoe Expedition Academy.

We are looking for students who dream big and are curious about the world around them. To apply please follow the steps listed below. If you have questions or comments, please contact our Admissions Department.

Contact us:
Call 1-530-440-5457 Or send an email to admissions@tahoeexpeditionacademy.org.

Submit an inquiry form or check out our FAQ page.

We are excited that you are interested in applying to our school. The steps below will guide you through the Admissions process. By completing this process, we can learn more about one another to see, in simplest terms, if we are a good fit. If you have any questions about the process, guidelines or information contained here within, please contact us directly.

Complete an Inquiry Form to tell us about yourself and to let us know that you are interested in learning more about our school. You can find the form online, or we can send one to you. When we hear from you, we can begin the process of getting to know one another and set up a Campus Visit and Tour.

We encourage each family and child to visit our school facility and speak with one of our staff members and administrators during a tour. This opportunity provides the family and child to acquire a first impression of our school and see our students in action. Tours and visits are scheduled after an initial inquiry form has been submitted or an application has been submitted.

The Shadow Day allows the child, family and school to determine whether or not there exists a good fit. By participating in a full day of classes, the child meets students, teachers and administrators and gains a clear sense of the day in the life of a student at Tahoe Expedition Academy. A Shadow Day is required for all students entering PreK-8th Grades, can involve more than one school day, and it is available and recommended for High School students. A Shadow Day can only be completed after a tour has been given, and the Medical and Emergency Information form and Waiver have been turned in.

An application, teacher reference forms and a transcript must be submitted after a Shadow Day has been conducted. Applicants in High School are required to complete the personal statement portion of the application. A non-refundable $50 application fee is required for each application.

An interview is a required part of the Tahoe Expedition Academy application process for students entering High School, if a Shadow Day has not been conducted. It consists of a one on one, 30-minute conversation on campus between the applicant and an admissions team or faculty member. If necessary, this interview can be conducted online.

The Head of School or Admissions Director conducts a home visit at the family’s residence as a final piece of the admissions process. If necessary, these visits can be conducted online. This final visit provides parents and students an opportunity to ask any lingering questions about Tahoe Expedition Academy, provides the school with insight into the family and child’s world, and allows TEA administrators an opportunity to explain our academic, character and adventure expectations.
