US Performance Academy Helps Students on the Go
A unique new school has created an environment specially designed for serious student athletes in middle and high school. US Performance Academy (USPA) is crafted around the distinctive lifestyle and schedule of a driven, sport-focused student. With everything from the curriculum to personal “Learning Coaches”; student athletes are supported from every angle.
Co-founder of USPA, Peter Smith, believes that this school is the solution to all of the problems that student-athletes face. “No more packets of worksheets to keep track of while traveling for competitions, no more conflicts with your school administration over absences, and no more slipping grades because of late night practice.”, says Smith. “We support our athletes on every level. Our Learning Coaches are there to make sure the student stays on top of their education, stays ahead of the game in their sport, and still has time to just be a kid.”
As an independent school, USPA has the flexibility to customize each student’s school year, schedule, and coursework. Grades, projects, papers, exams, and lessons are held in an online platform so students can take their school with them when they travel. This also allows students to do their school work on their own time.
Since managing school work and school schedule is a large responsibility, students are assigned a Learning Coach who helps them stay on track. Learning Coaches get to know the student and teach them time-management, organization, and college-preparatory skills that will help them to be successful beyond middle and high school. From competitive sailors to gymnasts, USPA is designed to support the entire student.
“We know that this school is not for everyone. But we also know that, for athletes, this is an ideal program that will help them become successful in life. We support the whole student.”, says Smith, “We hold in person orientations and amazing group and family events that allow USPA families to come together over various points of the year. Our learning coaches even travel to their students’ competitions. This school goes above and beyond an online classroom. It is a real community experience where like-minded learners can succeed together.”
USPA is enrolling now.
