Driven by Passion

We provide a one-of-a-kind basketball program that offers students a chance at increased success in the classroom, on the court, and confidence in everyday life. With a passion for basketball and academics, we were surprised by the amount of student athletes struggling in school across the USA.

Reading levels of the 183 UNC Chapel Hill athletes who played football or basketball from 2004-2012:

8-10% - Below Third Grade
60% - 4th to 8th Grade
30-32% - Above 8th Grade

With approximately 70% of the athletes not reading at an adequate level, we felt the desire to help change these statistics.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is to empower student athletes. Athletes are often pushed through school without fully meeting criteria to graduate. Our one-of-a-kind -program is designed to help student athletes graduate high school with endless academic opportunities.
