Edgenuity, a leading provider of online and blended learning solutions, announced today that US Performance Academy (USPA), an independent school for competitive athletes, is using Edgenuity’s Instructional Services to provide curriculum and educational support to its student athletes.
USPA currently serves competitive student athletes, providing a rigorous curriculum delivered through a customizable academic calendar. USPA’s unique program challenges highly motivated students, focusing on the skills and expertise needed to compete at the highest levels of both academics and sports.
“Edgenuity’s mission is to ensure that all students have access to quality education delivered at a pace and place best for them,” said Sari Factor, CEO of Edgenuity. “USPA has done a remarkable job giving world class student athletes the ability to earn a high school education without missing a step in their training, and we are proud that our teachers and curriculum support these students along the way.”
USPA uses a combination of its educators and Edgenuity’s online curriculum and certified teachers for its middle and high school students. By combining Edgenuity’s advanced technology with USPA’s high-performance athletics, students at USPA are able to take their learning with them while Edgenuity and USPA teachers and coaches provide the proactive instruction and flexibility needed.
“We believe that our students shouldn’t have to choose between pursuing their athletic dreams and pursuing a great education,” said Pete Smith, President of USPA. “With Edgenuity, our students are able to seamlessly migrate their daily academic work to any training center around the world, making it possible to master concepts and excel both on the playing field and off.”
“I enjoy being a part of USPA. The classes catch my interests on so many levels,” said Seu Jacobi, USPA student. “I love how I get to decide what I want to learn, when I want to learn, and how I want to learn.”
