The Academy for Advanced Academics & Athletics

The Academy for Advanced Academics & Athletics is designed to enable elite middle school athletes (grades 5-8+) to increase their opportunities for athletic, personal, and academic development outside of the traditional middle school model.

What makes us different?

Our focus is not on athletic development alone. We focus on the development of foundational executive-functioning skills, the skills required to organize, plan, schedule, and self-regulate. Well-developed executive-functioning skills are required to ensure a lifetime of success. We focus on academic rigor and challenge our student-athletes to think, perform, and grow to a higher level.

The philosophy of The Academy for Advanced Academics & Athletics is that every student-athlete possesses the ability to excel academically when provided with multiple opportunities to apply his personal learning style and strengths to the learning process. Direct Instruction is delivered through blended-learning techniques including real-time in-person/remote and online lessons.

The Academy for Advanced Academics & Athletics is built upon the foundation of individual research and project-based learning. The concept of project-based learning (PBL) has garnered wide support among K-12 education policy advocates and funders. PBL is viewed as an approach that enables students to develop the “21st-century competencies” — cognitive and socioemotional skills — needed for success in college and careers.[i] Student-athletes will be required to complete two multi-disciplinary independent research projects each year that will culminate with a group presentation.
