It has always been an important part of the vision of STA to ensure that each player has the opportunity to fulfil a leading academic programme that is fully integrated into their tennis programme.

We believe that education is crucial to the long-term development of every player.

“With the amazing support I received from everyone at STA I was able to pursue my tennis career whilst achieving the best grades possible in the classroom. This led to me fulfilling my dream of playing tennis at a top university in the States”

- Ella Taylor, former STA Player and Louisiana State University Graduate

The ACES Programme (Academic Centres for Excellence in Sport)

The ACES programme enables players to combine their tennis with an academic programme at Sotogrande International School. STA and SIS have developed a structured schedule incorporating the IB Middle Years Programme (American High School Diploma) for 14-16 year olds and International A Levels for 16-18 year olds.

Student-athletes under 14 follow bespoke programmes at tennis and school.
