Nestled in the shadows of Maine’s Sugarloaf Mountain, you’ll find Carrabassett Valley Academy – a private middle/high school with world-class recognition. Over the last 30 years, CVA has combined rigorous, challenging academics with competitive ski and snowboard training. The result of this combined framework has produced 11 Olympians, 28 US Ski Team members and 72 national titles. Well-known alumni, including two-time gold medalist Seth Wescott, alpine skiing legend Bode Miller and Alex Tuttle, with 19 World Cup starts, provide plenty of inspiration for incoming students. CVA credits student achievement with a deep foundation in equally developing body, mind and spirit.
L.L.Bean is proud to be the official outerwear provider of Carrabassett Valley Academy. As part of our partnership, L.L.Bean will outfit the 60 professional coaches with quality performance outerwear and offer discounted uniforms and outerwear for 300+ student athletes for their year-round outdoor pursuits. Together, L.L.Bean and Carrabassett Valley Academy hope to promote winter sports, and an appreciation for the Maine outdoors.
Head of School Kate Webber Punderson tells us, “Our coaches and athletes are on the mountain six days a week in all types of weather and their L.L.Bean outerwear always keeps them warm and dry. I could not be more proud and thrilled about CVA’s relationship with L.L.Bean.”
