In the fall of 2017, the Golf Performance Center, in partnership with K12 International Academy, launched an exciting, private alternative to traditional high school—a full-day educational and golf developmental curriculum open to a select few high-achieving student athletes. Roger Knick, Founder/CEO, and PGA Professional, felt that this type of program fit the profile of the academically- and athletically-motivated student who would thrive in this highly-charged innovative learning and sports environment.
Over 25 years of research by Stanford, Duke and many other leading universities reveal an undisputed fact: that each young person has his/her own unique style of learning, and when placed in a curriculum that allows them to dig deep into their own interests, they are better prepared for their futures. These studies show that the student who is allowed to follow both a passion for learning, and a structured extracurricular activity (such as golf), is 90% more likely to excel in both areas. It’s no wonder that independent study, or “blended” study programs like the Achieve Program, are becoming more popular throughout the country. No longer are the “normal” traditional public and private high schools producing the most sought-after candidates. Administrations and coaches are on the lookout for student athletes who are better prepared and bring more relevant experiences to their educational environment.
Our mission is to prepare our students for the rigors of collegiate academic and sport programs. We feature an award-winning online curriculum, with instruction from state-certified teachers and specialized on-site tutors. Also included are robust course offerings that include core subjects at multiple levels, and a wide range of electives with hands-on materials to create an individualized educational experience.
The Program delivers a learning plan tailored to students’ strengths and needs, as well as access to an online community and a variety of support—all designed to help them feel connected and engaged. Contrary to the preconceived notions of online education, Ethan Allen Preparatory School also provides students with a social experience. Our students find value in flexible scheduling, which allows for significantly more practice time and regular travel for tournaments. Our goal is to inspire a passion for learning while molding a bright, driven, and competitive college candidate.
"My experience at GPC is one I will take with me not only in golf but in all aspects of my life. My years at GPC have helped me develop as a golfer and as a young woman. When you have such a solid team behind you, a great experience is inevitable."
"The staff is always so positive and supportive. Our coaches are always pushing us to our fullest potential. GPC is continuing to teach me on and off the golf course. I started here when I was 13 years old and continue to show up, work hard, and learn something every day. I am so thankful for the GPC team who continue to put their all into us students."
