Windells Academy formally changes name to Wy’East Mountain Academy


We are proud to announce a new era.  While elite-level training for skiers, snowboarders, and skateboarders remains the core of our academy, we are evolving as an institution seeking to develop our students as whole people, not just as athletes. This name change signifies an expansion of our mission with renewed focus in the classroom and student life while investing heavily in our campus; many facility renovations are currently underway with several new and innovative training facilities on the drafting table and on the verge of breaking ground. 

We aren’t just changing, we’re growing.


Wy’East Mountain Academy?

“Wy’East” is the original name for Mt. Hood, given by the Multnomah people who first inhabited its nearby lands. This mountain drawing us together is central to our spirit of adventure and achievement.  It is this special place we call home and to which we pay homage. 


Our mission is life improvement through people, place, and passion.  We believe that if you put the right people, in the right place, with shared passions and college preparatory academics, you’ll not just improve the life of a young person, but change the world by helping to create driven and compassionate citizens.


We invite you to learn more about us through this website and to give us a call or visit our beautiful campus so we may share what drives us to make your student’s success our focus.
