Northern Lights Santa Academy - SchoolNorthern Lights Santa Academy Opens in Atlanta, GA

Christmas is coming early for those that want to know more about the opportunities and lifestyles of those Jolly Men in Red. Both new and experienced Santas throughout the Southeast who want to to be a professional in the industry can now learn firsthand from two seasoned Santas. With over 40 years of combined experience the instructors at Northern Lights Santa Academy bring a wealth of information to the classroom.

“This school will be unlike any school currently available throughout the country in several ways.” Santa Rick said: “We will not only offer the ‘standard’ information and classes, but a ‘fluid’ set of rotating classes individually tailored and made available based on the individual experience and needs of each Santa who pre-registers.” Santa Rick said, “There will be many other innovative things we are doing during each school session that are not being done at other Santa schools throughout the country.”
