The hockey academy


Full academic facilitation where you can learn online with the help of our state certified teachers. Options are available to attend a student's home state online program in order to remain eligible for graduation. Flexible accommodations can be made for students with an IEP and/or 504 plan. 


Over 300 hours of focused athletic development both on and off the ice. Our team of professional coaches is ready to help identify and focus on your training needs in order to help you move onto the next level. On ice practices and dryland & weightlifting sessions are offered daily in addition to additional training opportunities.  


We provide a championship environment where hockey players are given the resources needed to learn, grow, and compete to their fullest potential. Through the hospitality of the Barons Bus Arena, we are able to provide athletes with unparalleled access to a number of facilities designed to help them develop in their academic and hockey careers. 

Our Philosophy

We are different than traditional schools in the sense that there is much more independence here. Our philosophy is to help you transition from traditional scheduling to flexible scheduling, so you can learn to manage your academic and athletic responsibilities with proper time management. As an athlete at Cleveland Athletic Academy, you need to come into our school with the understanding that the responsibility is placed on YOU. Our coaches and teachers are here to help you in learning the responsibilities needed for success, but you must be willing to work every day.


We run our academy similar to local "traditional" schools, with holidays and other breaks incorporated in. Students are expected to begin their time at CAA on the start and end dates of the academic years in order to maximize their athletic growth. However, billet plans are available for students who wish to go home after the end of the hockey season.

The 2024-2025 school year is set to begin on August 19, 2024 and will conclude on May 23, 2025.
