WE ARE CHANGING

THE FACE OF EDUCATION

BECAUSE WE BELIEVE HUMANS HAVE A HEART OF GOLD AND THE POWER TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD

In 2011 we designed a new school model to update education for today’s world.
Powered by Constructive Adversity, we are inspiring a new generation of creative problem solvers with a social conscience. And we are growing TEA’s magic in order to reach thousands of young people far beyond the shores of Lake Tahoe.

Tahoe Expedition Academy is a fully accredited PreK-12th-Grade Private School located in Martis Valley, between the north shore of Lake Tahoe and the town of Truckee, California. Our first graduates are enrolled in some of the nation’s best colleges and universities and are having a positive impact on the world around them.

TEA IS POWERED BY CONSTRUCTIVE ADVERSITY®

Which is the intentional construction of and engagement with adverse environments in order to build character,
promote ethical engagement, and create knowledge and skills.
