Ethan Allen Prep to host virtual open house on March 27

One-on-one consultations available to learn more about the journey to playing college golf

(RIDGEFIELD, Conn.)Ethan Allen Preparatory (EAP) – a private academy for student-athletes in grades 6-12 that utilizes a highly-specialized and adaptable educational model to allow for intensive golf training at The Golf Performance Center – announces a Virtual Open House to be held Saturday, March 27 from 10am-2pm EST. The virtual tour will give attendees a behind the scenes look at how a tailored education and flexible class schedule allows juniors to achieve their goals both on and off the golf course.

Based on a student’s age, parents and juniors will be given a personalized tour through either a middle school or high school experience, outlining EAP’s different approaches to learning. Attendees can join anytime between 10am-2pm to hear from Founder Roger Knick, Director of EAP Charlie Wampfler, Director of Performance Tyler Campbell, Director of Coaching Dennis Hillman and Clinical Psychologist Dr. Josh Brant. Those interested in a one-on-one consultation about EAP’s proven track record of helping students succeed on the golf course and in the classroom can register here.

"Middle school and high school students have diverse intellectual, physical, emotional, and social abilities which plays a critical role in their learning habits,” says Charlie Wampfler, Director of Ethan Allen Preparatory. “We recognize these differences and believe that given the right educational environment and support, any student can grow as a learner."

Interested parents and juniors can find helpful educational materials, facility videos and a link to schedule a same-day phone call with EAP’s Admissions Counselor Tom Bopp here.

“Helping athletes learn at the appropriate pace is front of mind for us. We understand that every athlete is at a different developmental stage, particularly in the middle school and high school years,” says Tyler Campbell, Director of Performance. “Each junior athlete has their own areas of strength and weakness, both in the gym and in their golf game. Our programming is tailored to each individual to support them throughout their journey in junior golf.”

At EAP, 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.

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.
