Most of our international players have online schooling from their respective home country. From the Academy, we have our school tutors Christina Fredell and Jens Jacobsson, both working in the Good to Great Educational Team. Christina is a licenced high school teacher in Swedish and French. She has more than 10 years of experience from teaching and mentoring students and adults. Christina is also a certified leadership coach, editor and author.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4:30 – 6:00 p.m., Christina will meet students in the Study Room. Priority is given for students in high school/secondary school, but younger students are also welcome to these sessions. On Fridays at 7:30 – 9:00 a.m., Jens meets up in the Study Room.
For players that don’t have online schooling from their home country, we cooperate with Laurel Springs, a school for all ages.
Laurel Springs has long been the school for student athletes who seek flexibility and a college preparatory experience as they pursue their outside talents and interests. The courses are asynchronous, meaning that students can complete their work when it is convenient for them.
Most college athletic programs are regulated by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), an organization with rules and regulations on eligibility, recruiting, and financial aid. Colleges and universities are members of a division according to the size and scope of their athletic programs. Laurel Springs can help with academic planning for students who wish to pursue athletics at Division I or II colleges, as most of our courses are NCAA approved. Not all online high schools have NCAA approved courses, due to the high academic expectations associated with NCAA approval. Laurel Springs has a variety of resources to educate students about NCAA procedures. Our School Counselling Department has NCAA specialists on staff to help answer questions about the eligibility process.
