We can help you find out.
Not only we will help you find out, you will bring your education with you! Our educational portability and continuity give our students the option to move from one Accelerator School to another seamlessly. As such, we can provide a truly unique experience allowing our students to be fully immersed in new cultures while progressing up the hierarchy of our soccer development programs.
We combine advances in technology, evidence-based learning, and feedback from leaders in the workforce as well as parents and students to create an environment that prepares students to be truly successful; success that can be seen, measured, and felt through high school, college, and beyond while balancing academics and personal interests.
Sports programs adhere to each individual school, we provide everything from full-time team training environments to additional technical and individualized training programs. Each and every one of our programs are run by highly qualified coaches and directly connected to genuine sports pathways.
Accelerator School devotes time to building skills related to entrepreneurial thinking and design, web development and analytics, “soft skills”, presentation techniques, authentic networking, entertaining and building brands, and other future-ready ingenuity that makes Accelerator School students exceptional.
The ability to break down complex issues and establish inter-relationships between the parts by building conceptual understanding rather than strictly factual knowledge. Students should focus on taking their learning to the next level by understanding the “how” and “why” behind the concepts, not simply memorizing facts.
The ability to build one’s own learning system and develop the intrinsic motivation to become a life-long learner. Students are given the tools to master creating structure in lees structured environments, to learn, to focus, to meet deadlines, and to reach goals.
The ability to identify patterns and ask “what if” questions to create solutions or make improvements. Finding alternatives for what is accepted as the status quo and initiating change are encouraged.
The ability to work effectively and efficiently with other while building strong negotiation, leadership, communication, and collaboration skills. Developing the emotional intelligence to navigate interpersonal relationships productively and empathetically is key.
The ability to develop a grit-based mindset with the understanding that setbacks are opportunities to practice overcoming obstacles. There are no “failures” at the Accelerator School; every experience offers a chance to learn and improve.
