OUR MISSION

To provide educational and athletic opportunities that allow children to reach their full intellectual and physical potential. Breakaway Academy will be recognized as a highly respected private education academy, committed to a child's success, integrity and excellence. 


A MESSAGE FROM DAVE SNUGGERUD, FOUNDER & DIRECTOR OF EDUCATION

Breakaway Academy is dedicated to the growth of student athletes. By the time your son/daughter graduates from 8th grade they will be ready academically to attend the school of their choice, with hockey skills developed to play competitive high school hockey. Breakaway Academy will accomplish this through a traditional learning approach. Students will reach their goals through encouragement to excel independently and work cooperatively. By bringing their outside passion of hockey into the school day, your child will become more motivated to succeed both on and off the ice. Encouragement and opportunity to succeed are what helped me earn a Master’s Degree in Education, a spot on the 1988 U.S. Olympic Team, two MVP awards at the University of Minnesota, and a successful career in the NHL.  Learning how to work for your goals is exactly what I want for your child. I will guarantee a great experience for your son/daughter when they attend Breakaway Academy, they will 'break away' from the pack academically and in hockey!  - Sincerely, Dave Snuggerud                                                                 

Dave Snuggerud is the Director of Education for Breakaway Academy. After a successful college and NHL career, including a coveted spot on the 1988 U.S. Olympic Team, Dave is a teacher and coach and has more than 25 years of experience in both of his passions.
