We have the best connections to college coaches, both Men’s and Women’s, of any program or college recruitment company in the industry. We have placed players of all levels in the best college and with the best scholarship they can achieve. We have helped a wide range of levels and players find a good fit for their tennis, academics, and location needs.
"ATA students are prepared from the very first day they step out on the court of an elite collegiate program. They have the strength, knowledge, and skills to navigate the raging waters of collegiate tennis, and they're prepared to step up and compete at a higher level."
Greg Patton, Head Tennis Coach at Boise State University
At Advantage tennis Academy (ATA), we pride ourselves in maintaining an exceptional college placement program which helps students achieve both educational and athletic goals.
Our program provides the best college preparation because we focus on developing our players as a whole. Our top priorities are character development, self-discipline, academics, and tennis. Teaching players how to appropriately balance their athletic, academic, and personal lives gives them the tools they need to succeed in the college environment.
Advantage Learning Academy provides high school students an accredited college preparatory education, with education options through Connections Academy or the Irvine Unified School District's independent study programs.
With our focus on character development, high performance tennis training, and rigorous academic requirements, students leave our academy fully prepared for college. Our players have been admitted to top universities and colleges throughout the country, including: UCLA, Dartmouth, UC Irvine, Rice, Gonzaga, Loyola Marymount University, San Diego State University, Brigham Young University, Arizona State, University of Florida, University of Texas, Air Force Academy, Yale University, University of Michigan, Texas A&M, UC Santa Barbara, UC San Diego, Brown University, Northwestern, Amherst, University of New Mexico, and many others!
"While training at Advantage Tennis Academy, I felt like I was more efficient with my time on the court and in the classroom than at any other academy. Being able to study using K12's online curriculum along with the help of the teachers at Advantage Learning Academy, I was really able to succeed. Because of the time I spent at Advantage, I feel fully prepared to play college tennis in the Ivy League next fall."
