Full Time Junior Academy

Programme Description

A full-time programme for ages 14 to 18, where learners combine intensive high performance golf training with quality school education. Students can choose between studying the international Cambridge system, the American online GED or South African CAPS system.

The education is a hybrid of traditional and modern techniques, with full tutor support in supervised classes. This unique approach provides excellent academic support, whilst providing young golfers with the flexibility to adapt their study time around their tournament schedule. This style of education is becoming more popular for talented young athletes. Every student is able to work at their own pace, based on a preset work plan in each subject.

The students split their days between the classroom, the range, the gym and the golf course.
