"The Academy Way" focuses on the cognitive skills, executive functioning skills, personal development skills, communication, and interpersonal skills, and study skills student-athletes require to excel as elite high school and collegiate student-athletes.
Developing strong students is our foundational goal at The Academy for Academic and Athletic Achievement at Scorpions Wrestling
Because on average, less than 1% of high school student-athletes receive a full athletic scholarship each year.
And on average, 9.2% of high school students receive a merit-based academic scholarship each year.
However, on average, 13% of high school student-athletes who have a strong academic record receive a combination of athletic and merit-based academic scholarships each year.
The overarching goal of The Academy is to ensure that every student-athlete enters high school with no academic deficiencies and is prepared for college prep, honors, and advanced placement courses.
Our student-athletes excel in the classroom and on the mat.
Student-athletes are assessed in language arts and mathematics at the beginning, middle, and end of each year. Individual Academic Achievement Plans are developed based on each student-athlete’s assessment results. The overarching goal of The Academy is to ensure that every student-athlete enters high school with no academic deficiencies, and prepared for college prep, honors, and advanced placement courses.
Our instructional methods are founded in the disciplines of sports psychology and applied behavior analysis that supports the cognitive and behavioral skills required for performance enhancement. Every student-athlete collaborates with his or her academic coach to develop an Individual Athletic & Personal Performance Plan that includes goal setting; imagery and performance planning; concentration and attention control strategies; development of self-confidence, self-esteem, and competence in sports; cognitive-behavioral self-regulation techniques; emotion management, sportsmanship, and leadership skills.
Interdisciplinary Instruction is a method used to teach across curricular disciplines that brings together separate disciplines around common themes, issues, or problems. For example, the study of mathematicians, scientists, musicians, and artists from the same historical period.
We believe that student-athletes, including those with mild reading or math learning disabilities, such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, or dysgraphia, and those with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, possess the potential to excel academically, when provided with opportunities to apply his or her personal learning style and strengths to the learning process.
