Academia de Golf IMG en USA

IMG offers an American education system from 6th to 12th grade (equivalent to ESO and Bachillerato).

This education system focuses on three core subjects where other elective courses can be added depending on the grade level. The basic subjects are English, science and mathematics.

Language classes at Golf camp

Native teachers
No

This education system is knows for being a bit different than the typical theory class since it encourages student participation so he/she can form an opinion about points of view; learn to speak in front of an audience as something natural and respect different opinions from other students. This method motivates students quite a bit, allowing them to act responsible from an early age. No one tells them to study or asks if they finished their homework. Each student knows what he/she has to do and the consequences if they don´t do it, this way kids learn to make their own decisions and take on the responsibilities of their actions.

 

Flexible Classes

Classes are flexible in order to adapt to their sports schedule and for this reason, two schedules are offered (one in the afternoon and the other in the morning) so no matter what type of high intensity training the students have, they can attend classes.

Online Platform

The educational program is available on the online platform. This way, students have access to all the materials being covered should they be away participating in a competition and if the parents want to know what their kids are studying at a given time and the grades they receive.

Tutorials

Tutors are available to help kids with questions or homework at night, once they are finished with classes and training.

Teachers are also available to offer support during competitions. If a student is away competing for more than 5 days, he/she will be accompanied by a tutor in charge of making sure homework is completed.

IMG Golf Academy in USA

From Monday to Friday, students have a heavy workload. They combine their classes with training and have two hours of supervised study at night. They have more free time on the weekends, for example, when they are not competing they can participate in entertaining activities or field trips outside the academy that are usually held on Sundays.

Competitions are usually held on the weekends and many athletes travel away to compete in tournaments.
