"This is an exciting partnership and collaboration, especially as the world becomes increasingly more digitally inclined," notes Chad Dorman, LAC's Founder and Director. "Remote learning is growing by the day, and to have a top-flight education right at the fingertips of our student-athletes around the world is not just an educational stop-gap, but is an academic solution and opportunity, one that is quickly becoming a way of life."
US Performance Academy is designed for young athletes looking for a school that supports their unique schedule, creates a pathway towards their personal, professional, and athletic goals, and leverages the latest technology for an on-the-go environment. The supportive, flexible, innovative school you have been searching for.
This is a school and a program is unlike any other. Designed by athletes and educators, the approach specifically benefits driven students who are training, traveling, competing, and pushing to the next level. The online curriculum allows for a flexible school schedule and academic calendar. The support system keeps students involved, motivated, and on track to success. And the focus on the student-athlete’s future goals and aspirations opens up a doorway to future opportunities.
USPA President, Pete Smith, learned first hand during his Olympic campaign about the time and commitment a student-athlete needs to dedicate to their sport in order to succeed. Those experiences, combined with his time at Columbia, and his time running traditional schools allowed him to understand that handing a student a pile of worksheets and labeling them as “supportive” just isn’t good enough.
Learning doesn’t need to be dictated by where you are in the world. Students don’t need to be in a classroom, sitting in rows of desks. It can be so much better and it needs to be so much better.
That’s why US Performance Academy was created. As former athletes and educators, they understand the schedule of a high level athlete: priorities, unique goals, and struggles facing academics. Together with LAC, USPA will continue to offer solutions, not more road-blocks.
This is a school and a system unlike any other, and we're excited for our future together!
