One of the main aims of our training programmes is to prepare our students to the best of their ability, both physically and mentally. Therefore, academic performance is also monitored and evaluated. CIT offers the following study methods:
a) 3RD and 4th Year secondary school (Spanish / Catalan ESO syllabus)
Players can attend classes in state schools which have a special partnership with the Catalan Tennis Federation and whose timetables have been specially adapted to the training schedule. Players attend the Institut Miquel Martí i Pol (in Cornellà de Llobregat) for morning classes or the Institut Ferran Tellada (in Barcelona) for classes in the afternoon.
b) Players can also study 4th year of ESO and 1st or 2nd year Bachillerato with ICESD (Institut Català d’Estudis Secudaris a Distància). Students attend four tutorial hours per day supervised by qualified teachers.
c) American High School
1. Players attend four tutorial hours a day (from Monday to Friday) on-site, studying courses designed by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Students are guided by fully-qualified instructors and their progress is regularly checked through online testing, projects and written evaluations. Some of the advantages of this learning system are: smaller classes allow the teacher to offer more personalised tuition; the wide selection of subjects gives students the opportunity to choose courses which they are interested in; as evaluations and homework can be done online and at home, students can catch up in their free time. In addition, the daily timetable has been specifically tailored so that study time and training sessions do not affect each other.
2. Preparatory classes for official American university entrance examinations can also be taken: SAT-I, SAT-II, TOEFL or GED. Language classes, especially English and Spanish, can also be taken. Other language, such as Catalan and French, are also taught.
Apart from academic studies, America International helps organise tennis scholarships at American universities. These grants can cover from 75-100% of the fees, depending on the student’s tennis level.
The teaching staff assess the syllabus, control attendance, help the students to organise their study schedule and send regular updates regarding their son or daughter’s progress.
