Flexible class schedule allows top local tennis athletes to learn and train on their own terms
Boca Raton, (April 28, 2017) – Grandview Preparatory School is expanding its passion-based and personalized approach to education by cementing an exclusive partnership with Boca Raton’s Rick Macci Tennis Academy (RMTA). RMTA will be promoting Grandview as their exclusive brick and mortar educational offering. We will continue to offer our excellent academics and flexible scheduling opportunities to all mission specific students.
Grandview’s flexible schedule, engaging campus community and emphasis on personalized education allows the school to accommodate a well-rounded academic experience while providing student-athletes the time needed to develop into top tier athletes at one of the premier tennis academies in the world.
Beginning in fall 2017, students will work directly with Grandview advisors to tailor their core-curriculum schedule around their training schedule. Tennis academy founder Rick Macci has the distinction of having trained and worked with five players that have reached #1 in the tennis world on the Men’s and Women’s Tours. These include: Andy Roddick, Venus Williams, Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova, and Jennifer Capriati. Macci’s hands-on approach and overall unique ability to analyze and correct technical, strategic, and mental deficiencies has resulted in over 124 USTA National Championships since 1985, and all four Junior Grand Slams.
"Grandview’s passion-based and personalized approach to education is a perfect complement to Macci Tennis Academy’s high performance training and personal attention to students," said Grandview Preparatory School’s Head of School, Jacqueline Westerfield. "We are thrilled that Rick Macci Tennis Academy is partnering with Grandview and are looking forward to welcoming such passionate and committed students to our community in the fall."
