Figure Skating Program

At West Nottingham Academy students can both: a full high school experience while investing in competitive training.

Students and families who are serious about training but also wish for a more complete academic and social high school experience can find it under the Academy's Skating Program. Students no longer have to choose between training or high school anymore - they can do both! Perhaps you are a competitive skater, or perhaps you want to focus on gymnastics, equestrian, dancing or theatre arts - we could be the school for you!

For Skaters: West Nottingham Academy, in consultation with local arenas, including the Ice Skating Science Development Center at the University of Delaware, has developed an academic support program to provide world-class education for world-class skaters.


  • Daily transportation services to and from the rink. Skaters will have time for a quick lunch and return for dinner. The van will leave WNA at 12:25 and pick up at 4:30, Monday - Friday. **
  • Coursework to fit training schedules. This allows completion of a 80-100% coursework during the school year with the possibility of a sixth course during the summer months;
  • Complete academic support services & college counseling to assist with the next step;
  • A faculty advisor and study hall proctors to help manage classes and homework;
