In an ever changing world, teens are facing challenges and given resources that our parents never dreamed of. The skills required to help guide teens towards a successful life are changing. Our programs are designed to help both students and parents with these new and sometimes daunting challenges.
In the new global community, students need to have a wider view of the planet and the people who live on it. As a result, they benefit from reaching out into the world and expanding their horizons. We have spent over 20 years building and expanding our programs to help teens find their strengths and additionally to the help bolster their weaknesses to help them keep up with the changes and to thrive.
As we move through the new millennia and as the world moves from localized to global economies, the education that is required to succeed has changed along with the communication skills, leadership skills and more.
The skills that are learned in a closed classroom can fade over time, while the skills that are derived from or reinforced by exploring the world, are never lost.

Capt. Scott is our founder and Director.
Capt. Scott has been helping teens to prepare for the ever changing challenges of the modern world for over 20 years and has been running adventure programs for teens even longer.
While working with hundreds of teens Capt. Scott found that both brilliant and challenged students tended to struggle in a modern western educational system that is designed around the mythical and non-existent "average" student.
Capt. Scott began searching to find a curriculum, staff and programs that supported students and created a platform for the leaders of tomorrow.
The Ultimate Adventure Academy is the culmination of this research and decades of working with teens.
Capt. Scott is happy to help any other schools, church groups, teen programs and individual teens or parents in creating a path to a better and brighter future.

Over the last 20 years we have worked with teens to help prepare them for the challenges of a constantly changing world. While doing this we found that the standard education systems are designed for a "normal" or "average" student - but we have never met one of these "normal" or "average" students.
