EAP is a model for schools of the future, as class and study schedules are flexible to allow for intensive golf training at The Golf Performance Center, the Northeast’s leading golf academy. Both day-students and boarders experience the flexibility of a blended learning curriculum with the personalization of small group learning opportunities through EAP’s partnership with K12. The principles taught in the classroom are intertwined with the values being taught on the golf course.

“In order to compete at a high level while receiving a proper education, our current environment is forcing many students and their families to look for alternatives to the traditional schooling model,” says Knick. “At EAP, we utilize a flexible and tailored curriculum coupled with increased playing opportunities to develop young people into well-rounded individuals ready to take the next step in their golf career.”

With enrollment for the Fall 2021 semester now open, families will come away with a thorough understanding of both EAP’s progressive approach to academic curriculum and The GPC’s advanced golf development philosophies. Future student-athletes will also learn about what they can expect from life on campus.

For more than 20 years, The GPC have successfully guided nearly 100 competitors as they prepare for golf at the highest levels. Alumni include multiple NCAA All-Americans, current and former student-athletes at 80 different colleges and universities and professionals who have won on the Korn Ferry Tour, Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada and European Tour.
