US Performance Academy
US Performance Academy was originally designed by our co-founders to solve the problem that they witnessed today’s young athletes are facing: “How do I choose between my love of competitive athletics and my desire for a strong education?” With US Performance Academy, student athletes do not have to make a choice.
We have created a customizable, flexible, college-prep, middle and high school for students who are involved in competitive athletics. These athletes face the daily challenges of missed classes, missed assignments, travel with stacks of worksheets to complete, coordination with teachers and coaches, a feeling of unbalance in life, and exhaustion. US Performance Academy students and families have no longer face those stresses. Check out a sample of a week in the life of a USPA student: Week in the Life
What makes US Performance Academy different?
US Performance Academy provides students with 1:1 attention with our learning coaches. They serve as a mentor for students and a support system for families. Students also receive 1:1 instruction from highly qualified teachers on our online platform. This allows students to complete assignments on the road, between training, and on a schedule that works for them. Our curriculum keeps students interested and learning in a way that they begin to relate their coursework directly to their life and sport.
Network of Athletes
Our network of athletes around the US provides another layer of support, understanding, and learning. Students who are experiencing the same rigorous athletic schedule, the same excitement of travel, and the same competitive heart are networked together through US Performance Academy. They can share their triumphs, their struggles, and their wisdom. We host multiple regional conferences for students and families to meet and bond. These students are competing against each other on the field and collaborating together in their education.
Challenge Based Learning
Challenge based learning is a unique, engaging, and multi-disciplinary approach to teaching and learning that encourages students to leverage the technology they use in their daily lives to solve real-world problems through efforts in their homes, schools, and communities. Through our network of athletes, students are able to work together on CBL projects and through our regional conferences, can work face-to-face to collaborate.
