What is it?
The New Heights Summer Academy is a comprehensive athletic and educational program for rising 5th-8th grade student-athletes.

Summer Academy participants will engage in an equal amount of sports and academic programming Monday-Thursday. Friday field trips will be educational, developmental and most importantly, FUN!

What are the goals of Summer Academy?

  • Provide a fun and supportive space where students participate in activities that develop their academic, athletic, communication, leadership and teamwork skills.

  • Engage in interactive group activities and technology programming that will reinforce ELA and mathematics curricula, reducing the summer slide.

  • Improve student-athletes’ basketball and athletic skills through high-quality coaching and mentoring, daily practice, competition, and strength and conditioning training.

  • Prepare students for high school admissions through workshops on school choice, the application process, test preparation and interview skills.
