High School Academics at IDA

May 23, 2023

High school is a crucial time in any student’s life. It is difficult to juggle high school academics and high-level athletes at the same time, so we have partnered with some of the best in the business to accommodate our student-athletes to ensure they are set up for a successful future both on and off of the field.

IDA offers high school academics that fulfill the high school curriculum needs of both the United States and the United Kingdom.

US Performance Academy – Spain & UK

We partner with USPA, a fully accredited, NCAA approved online high school academics that allow our student athletes to train full-time. USPA ensures all student-athletes receive a personalized experience by pairing them with a “learning coach”. A learning coach serves as their advisor, advocate, and mentor. This is a great tool and resource to ensure the student stays on task and is advancing as intended. 

Course work at USPA is granular and flexible. It includes a core curriculum, honors and AP classes, and electives chosen by the student. Graduation requirements include the following: English (4 credits), Math (3 credits, at least to Algebra II), Science (3 credits, including Biology and Chemistry), Social Science (3 credits including World History and US History), World Language (2 credits), and Elective Courses (5 credits, including .5 credits of Health). 

USPA also offers College Counseling services to all of their student-athletes to assist them in the decision of further education. USPA services are available to our athletes in the Spain and UK Academies. 

Kings InterHigh – Spain & UK

IDA is partnered with Kings InterHigh, UK’s leading online secondary school. Evidently Kings InterHigh provides expert instructors, flexible learning done anywhere, engaging and innovative technology, 24/7 access to lessons, and small class sizes.
