Snowflake High School is one of the oldest schools in Arizona. It was founded in the late 19th century for the education of Snowflake’s youth. In 1888 the Snowflake Stake Academy was established to provide education beyond the 8th grade for all who cared to attend. It was initially established by the LDS Church as part of its Church Educational System. In 1924 the Snowflake Union High School District was created and the Stake Academy was closed.
After struggling in borrowed or rented facilities for a decade, a new brick Academy building was erected in 1901 on a gentle elevation south of the existing village of Snowflake.
Snowflake High School hosts the town’s Groundhog Brunch on Feb 3rd.
