Frequently Asked Questions
No. US Performance Academy is not a sports school. We offer an academic solution for athletes looking to balance their education with their athletics. USPA is designed for athletes that are already involved in a competitive team or individual sport.
Our academic leadership team works hand in hand with learning coaches throughout the admissions process to make every effort to place an incoming student at the appropriate level across all subjects. These are ongoing discussions throughout orientation and as the student begins his/her courses.
Students are required to complete 20 academic credits to graduate from USPA.
Yes, please refer to our course catalog.
USPA students who require a Physical Education credit for college admission can earn one credit per year on their transcripts upon receiving a letter from their coach indicating that they participating in regular training for a minimum of 6 months of a calendar year.
Physical Education credits (up to one per year) earned at another institution can also listed on your USPA transcript.
In both scenarios, Physical Education credits are not included in the calculation of your GPA, nor do they count toward meeting the minimum 20 course graduation requirement. All Physical Education credits are listed as Pass or Fail.
Yes, we strongly believe that you shouldn’t be limited in exploring your interests as a student because you are a high performing athlete. Students are encouraged to explore our extensive elective offerings in our course catalogs.
The schedule is developed by the student athletes and their learning coach during student orientation. We consider training schedules, academic strategies, and overall personal goals for each of our students. The typical schedule is three times per week and times vary between 15 minutes to over an hour depending on subject matter being discussed.
This starts during the enrollment process when our new student athletes meet their learning coach for the first time. In those initial orientation meetings, there are multiple discussions about learning styles and organization all developed to allow our students to become self directed learners within the USPA community. We believe that it’s a continual process of relationship building and support. We also offer a Online Learning and Digital Citizenship elective for those who are interested.
USPA uses 3 different support features in the learning environment. One feature is on-demand tutoring where any student can push a button on the screen, choose the subject, and enter into a live chat and interactive whiteboard session with a tutor.
Yes, they focus on teaching each of their students specific skills around organization, routines, and managing their own learning. It all begins during orientation with a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) discussion and then each week our learning coaches develop plans to integrate different learning opportunities for each of their students.
USPA Learning Coaches begin working with their students during orientation to identify the optimal time to complete their school work, what is their typical training schedule, and what type of physical environment do they learn best in. Then, working with each family, we suggest a time of study that integrates each of those elements. We recommend at least 4-5 hours of study per day but due to the nature of our student’s activity understand that this may increase or decrease on any given day. In addition to school work, each student has academic meetings with their learning coach throughout the year to discuss academic progress, training schedules, and study skills.
Yes. USPA offers a full college & career counseling program. We continue to build relationships with various college coaches and admission offices throughout the United States. We are privileged to have the MIT head sailing coach as a member of our founding advisory council.
One. We don’t lump students together because their academic needs are similar. We absolutely mean it when we tell families that each student’s experience is individualized and the academic calendar can be customized to meet the athletic demands for each student. Just because the student has an individualized schedule, does not mean they work alone. Our students are required to collaborate with other USPA students.
USPA integrates and leverages our students’ passion for athletics into the learning environment. Our elective topics incorporate our students’ passions outside the classroom. Students also collaborate with other USPA student-athletes throughout the country on challenge based learning projects that incorporate relevant learning experiences in the learning process and require our students to apply what they are learning in their classroom to solve critical issues.
Each student is assigned a USPA Learning Coach who handles all of our student and family needs and plays an integral part of each USPA student’s success. Each student has the ability to customize their own learning schedule and to spread each academic year over 12 months. This allows them to take advantage of different offerings in the classroom and athletic opportunities to truly individualize their learning experience.
