Finding flexible schooling for athletic students

Is your child a busy athlete looking for flexible schooling? Do they need the time and opportunity to practice and compete in their sport but need to complete their education as well? The National Sport Academy and the STEM Learning Lab have partnered to offer Connected Campus, a web-based distance-education program for athletic students. Students access learning tools either 1 on 1, online, or through virtual reality to complete their middle and high school education while they excel in their sport.

    • Personalized academic planning
    • Weekly parent communication
    • Exam preparation
