EVA Programs

Summer Adventure Program

East Valley Academy offers Summer Adventure Programs for children ages 7-12, with separate programming for each age bracket. The summer programming builds upon the positive social and problem-solving skills that the student learns during the school year in a high-intensity, outdoor experiential learning program. Activities include rock climbing, canoeing/kayaking, hiking, rappelling, and orienteering.  

Extended School Year Program

East Valley Academy offers an Extended School Year (ESY) for 5 weeks in the summer. ESY is offered to students who need to obtain academic skills continuously throughout the year. ESY participates in an Adventure Learning Day, hands-on activities in school and in the community, as well as volunteering. Participation in the ESY program is contingent on the sending school’s determination that this service is necessary for the student.
