UEA had been great for our daughter, Lauren. It provides the flexibility to pursue her riding goals while not sacrificing her education. Academic rigor is important to us, and UEA has delivered. My daughter is academically stimulated, loves her classes and tutors, and feels like she is learning more now than she was in her previous school. Also, when she suffered an injury, UEA was very helpful and supportive. They went the extra mile to assist her in making up her work and finishing the semester on time."

From our first meeting with UEA over five years ago when we engaged their services for three weeks of tutoring through our current, more-so full time work with them, we have, without exception, found Heather, Kate, Andrew, and Laurie to be extremely knowledgeable, professional, and thorough in their individually customized approach to supporting our daughters, personally and academically...To say that we highly recommend them is an understatement."

UEA is amazing! Five stars! Exceptional support in person during our winter show season as well as flexible virtual tutoring all year long. First class tutors and staff, both professional and responsive. UEA has met all of my daughter’s needs and exceeded my expectations. Highly recommended!

I wanted to share with you our wonderful experience with Ella's academic advisor Natalie. Natalie was one of the best investments in Ella's education; we wish we met her years ago! She provided Ella with excellent, thoughtful and strategic guidance when tackling a very unknown journey of the US College application process. Natalie also gave Ella an enormous boost of confidence with essay writing, digging deep, looking beyond the common thought and really pushing her to do her best. I don't think she knows what a profound impact she has had on Ella even outside of her applications. We are grateful for your introduction and connection.

“UEA helps me stay on top of all my work while being in Florida for the winter and traveling during finals season. The tutors are helpful, attentive, and understand the rigors of juggling a full course load while training and competing. They are concise, competent, and detailed enough to fully explore each subject...Throughout my time at UEA, I have not only thrived academically, but I have also gained experiences and tools that will assist me as I finish high school and begin the college process. UEA has made it easy to stay on a successful academic track while allowing me to pursue my equestrian goals.

“UEA has really helped me with my time management skills for school. They also understand how much the horses mean to me. Before working with UEA, I dreaded school, but they've made schoolwork enjoyable. I really appreciate UEA’s support in and out of the ring, and can't thank them enough for all they do as it’s tough to manage school and riding at this level.”

- Alex A.

“UEA has allowed me to give full effort in both riding and school. Being in an enthusiastic and supportive school environment has helped me reach my goals.”

- Teddi P.

“I’ve been working with UEA for several years now, and they’ve helped me manage a difficult schedule that works around competition and training hours, while also getting enough time to do my classes. Working with UEA has taught me time management, flexibility, and has improved my study skills. The tutors make learning fun and easy, yet also manage to keep me on pace in my classes!”

- Bella C.

“I appreciate UEA because of their flexibility and understanding of an equestrian's schedule. The tutors are amazing, and you learn so much every time you sit down with them. Also, Heather and Kate are so helpful whenever you need anything - I’m just so thankful to be able to work with everyone at UEA.”
