Voices From Our Community

This is the first time I feel like I fit in. I can be my total self at USPA.”

Dorothy Greenshields, USPA GOAL Student, Ski Racing

USPA has been a game–changer for our family! Our daughter was in a fantastic private school prior to joining USPA in 6th grade, but she is a competitive figure skater, and it was becoming harder and harder for the school to accommodate her training schedule. We decided to make the jump to online school, and the transition has been very smooth.”

Eva Beninson, USPA Student, Figure Skating

The support of my learning coach meant the world to me. Without his guidance and encouragement through the tough times, I certainly wouldn’t be the person I am today. The entire experience at USPA had an immense impact on me and prepared me to be my best self at the US Coast Guard Academy.”
