Handle It Prep Academy provides educational opportunities to young men that have struggled in high school and are talented in basketball.
Student athletes have the opportunity in a small classroom setting, to bring their grades up to a level that can get them into college. Meanwhile, student athletes receive intense basketball training giving them the essential tools to compete at the highest level of athletic competition. This ensures players the opportunity to see and be seen by some of the top names in basketball today.
In addition to playing an unheard of schedule for 2014/15 that include games with the nations top ten ranked schools. Our young men travel, spend time with professional players, trainers, and coaches, attend special events, receive mentoring and can even take college level courses.
Although the cost of the school is less than half the tuition charged by other academy's, there is still an expense to educate, house, feed, uniform, and provide travel and mentoring for these children. There are currently 3 young men in various situations from homelessness to escaping neighborhood violence, that are awaiting angel sponsorships to the academy.
We would like the opportunity to offer full ride scholarships to these young people and give them the opportunity to raise their grades and increase their athletic visibility to colleges and universities.
Tuition is currently $15,000 per year and includes:
NCAA certified high school education or
Post Grad SAT/ACT test assistance
College level courses available
Room and board
Handle It Prep Academy is non profit and has agreed to forward thank you letters to supporters for 2014 tax purposes.
