The Academia Sánchez-Casal, in conjunction with ES International School, offers players who aim to become tennis professionals the possibility of completing an American educational program on campus.
The school program is offered in a format that makes it fully compatible with a student's sport training without undermining academic quality. The program requires students to complete at least their Senior Year, or twelfth grade, of the American secondary education system in order to graduate. For further information about which universities our graduates have attended, see College Tennis.
The academic year is divided into two academic semesters:
Fall Semester (approximately 1 September to 22 December)
Spring Semester (approximately 7 January to 22 June)
Those students attending the school's third through eighth grades will have their academic classes in the morning from 08:00 to 13:55, and their tennis training in the afternoon. Those students attending ninth through twelfth grades will have tennis training in the morning, and have their classes from 12:10 to 17:20.
To make their academic schedules compatible with tennis, the final school and sports training schedule will depend on the grade level of the student and his/her tennis level.
Number of students: 115
Number of faculty: 22
Grade levels: 3º to 12º
Nationalities represented: 35
The Language Program offers the possibility of combining weekly, monthly and annual tennis programs with Spanish or English as a Foreign Language (EFL) courses on-site at the Academia Sánchez-Casal campus.
The language program is perfectly designed for athletes wishing to train in their favorite sport at the Academy while learning Spanish or English. We involve students in a process of linguistic communication and intensive practice of the four basic elements of language education: oral, comprehension, written and reading proficiency.
With a total of 7 ½ hour per week, the language courses are given in the afternoons, Monday to Friday, making them totally compatible with sport training at the Academia Sánchez-Casal. Classes can start every Monday.
