OUR ACADEMICS ARE

Customized.

Working with our trusted education partners, we offer a completely customized platform where individuals study online with certified instructors. The TPH Academy Blended Learning Environment is deliberately designed for student-athletes. It combines in-person learning guidance with the latest in educational technology and virtual academics. Course progress is actively supervised and optimized by our academic leaders in real-time. Student-athletes are prepared to become independent, self-starting college freshmen through our mastery-based learning approach.

The TPH Academy blended learning environment combines an online curriculum, on-site infrastructure, and academic support. Academic leaders are in the classroom working with students to ensure a positive learning environment, accountability, a personalized structure and accelerated learning programs as they train for their sport.

Through our trusted education partners, our academy course library provides student-athletes access to NCAA-approved Core classes, a large collection of AP offerings, and 80+ custom electives, including foreign languages, arts, and more. Our academic partners are all Cognia accredited, and all graduating student-athletes will receive a private/public school diploma issued by our state partner. Students not only advance their education but also learn organization, study skills, and how to adapt their own learning styles.

Courses and assignments are tailored to each individual and prioritized by the TPH academic team in partnership with the student-athlete with their weekly sports and competition schedule in mind.

  • Individually Tailored Courseware
  • AP, Honors & Foreign Language Courses

BUILDING THE TPHATHLETEPERSONSTUDENT

The TPH Academy training program is designed for aspiring elite student-athletes who are willing to invest their time and effort into personal growth. At TPH we recognize that individual skill focus often gets neglected due to busy competition schedules, lack of facility accessibility after academic hours, and team-centric coaching. TPH is focused on long-term student-athlete development by providing platforms that allow each individual to discover new levels of potential. 

Frequently Asked Questions

While we are one team, TPH Academy is not sports a team. We are an academy that allows you to focus on your individual skills. Additionally, you can still play for your current team. This makes for an awesome training environment where our student-athletes get to build a community with like-minded student-athletes.

At TPH Academy, each student-athlete learns from certified Teachers through our customizable virtual platforms with 24/7 access to virtual Tutors. Our on-site Director of Academics and Success Coach(es) are additional resources as they cultivate an environment conducive to learning. These multiple layers of support ensure that your student-athlete receives a personalized academic plan; preparing them for the game of life.

Our student-athletes train four days a week in the gym on-site with our coaches.

DID YOU KNOW: student-athletes can receive physical education credit for the training.

They are certainly welcome to, but we do offer a meal plan working with the restaurant, located inside the facility, to offer healthy and delicious options at an affordable price.

This is one of the primary benefits of TPH Academy. The traditional system is not conducive to the lifestyle of the aspiring elite student-athlete. We are very flexible with our attendance policy because we do understand the travel that sports require and the toll that a season can take on a student-athlete. The beauty of our platform is that we can operate virtually. Need a recovery day? Stay home, you can do your course work from home, our staff can additionally send you a home workout. The biggest factor is that we believe our student-athletes get the most out of their experience by attending on-site, but we understand that may not always be possible.

The goal of our mentorship program is to educate our student-athletes on “the process” of becoming elite. Part of that is through the mentorship program which includes Coach FA's Mentorship Program, community service, field trips, and guest speakers.

We believe TPH Academy provides more balance as our student-athletes finish a day at the Academy, attend their club's practice, and then are free the rest of the day. We believe our platform gives our student-athletes more time to spend as they wish away from the Academy. Additionally we require our student-athletes to fill out daily surveys through Kinduct that help our staff understand the holistic state of our student-athletes. These surveys track sleep, nutrition, injuries, and more to assist us in ensuring we know how to balance their workload.

TPH Academy can provide support for IEP's and 504's. We have built our centers with learning environments that help all types of learners and set up our student-athletes for success. However, students will have to complete a determination meeting with our education partner to ensure we can meet all the needs of the student.
