U.S. Performance Academy recognizes that highly competitive student-athletes bring a myriad of learning styles to the educational process. With this in mind, we are excited to introduce our new program called G.O.A.L (Guided Opportunities for Achievement and Learning). GOAL’s mission is to embrace the ever-evolving learning profiles found among middle and high school students. Whether a student has a specific learning disability, ADHD, is gifted, is twice-exceptional, or has a condition that requires an accessible educational environment, US Performance Academy is intentional in providing appropriate support to students and families.

U.S. Performance Academy uses a leveled support system based on specific accommodations and 1:1 live support with a Learning Specialist or School Counselor ranging from .5–1.5 hours per week.
