Junior golf academies prepare athletes for success in college and beyond. And, to be a successful college athlete, you must first be a successful student. Our academies work with the finest academic providers to ensure that academics come first and are complemented with the finest sports training available.
Each of our schools is unique and offers the academic training needed to get into the college of your dreams. All are highly accredited institutions boasting 100% college placement and scholarship rates as high as 90%.
We offer both traditional high school experiences as well as options for more intensive academy-specific education.
The teenage years are amongst the most challenging in a person’s development. It is important that they get guidance in the following:
- Character, including grit/determination, integrity, discipline, courage, overcoming failure, service to others, leadership etc.

- Critical analysis and thought through academic education
