Has your child ever felt pulled between tennis and school? Having time to dedicate to tennis makes all the difference in maintaining a competitive edge, but the traditional 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. school day can limit a player’s options. Dwight Global Online School, the online program of Dwight School on New York’s Upper West Side, offers a solution. Dwight Global’s flexible scheduling allows players to maintain rigorous practice, travel and competition schedules, while pursuing academic excellence.
Blended and flexible online learning
At Dwight Global, students can attend Dwight online classes from home, their tennis center or on the road. Students are also invited to Dwight School’s campuses for in-person experiences. They may study at Dwight’s campuses in New York, London, Shanghai, Seoul and Dubai.
Dwight players may choose to study Advanced Placement courses, the International Baccalaureate Curriculum, or their own personalized course of study. Classes are NCAA-approved—they pass rigorous standards required for entry into Division I and II schools.
Dwight’s expert faculty encourage Dwight’s students to believe in their own talents, follow their hearts and take intellectual risks.
Specialized college guidance
Starting in Grade 9, Dwight college counselors work closely with players to prepare them for the college admissions process. While some athletes head straight to the pros, Dwight has a long tradition of placing graduates in leadership roles at top college athletic programs. Admissions officers recognize the difference between a prestigious Dwight Diploma and other online-only programs.
