Our Approach

Designed by athletes and educators, our approach specifically benefits driven students who are training, traveling, competing, and pushing to the next level.

Our online curriculum allows for a flexible school schedule and academic calendar. This flexible schedule allows our student athletes the time they need to train and travel at the highest level. Our USPA support system keeps students involved, motivated, and on track.

The USPA Difference
USPA is the only online school offering elite athletes a high quality education while also enabling them to achieve their dreams in sport.

Real Time. Real Relationships.

Connection is crucial to our success at USPA. Our teachers, learning coaches come together to support and pursue the student’s academic passions and challenges. Most of our team members have been elite athletes themselves and they understand the demands of our students.

Learning Coach

Think of our learning coaches as a personal trainer for your academics. A learning coach is assigned to every student upon enrollment and sticks with them throughout their entire USPA journey. Many of our students think of their learning coach as a mentor. This relationship is crucial for the support of the student and parent at USPA.

Student Centered Community

Outside of the traditional academic course work, students at USPA are connecting on multiple levels. USPA offers clubs such as Book Club, Travel Club, Cooking Club, Music Club and more.
