If I plan to stay enrolled at my current school, what support does UEA provide?

UEA provides tutoring and administrative oversight for students who remain enrolled in their school of record. Our team will communicate with teachers and administration at your current school in order to facilitate the process of leaving and returning to routine enrollment. UEA tutors will teach each of your subjects, covering the content missed during your absence.

Does UEA adhere to a typical academic calendar?

UEA’s year-round students have a flexible academic calendar that helps students balance demanding coursework along with their passion for sport. While most students adhere to a typical school year, others choose to work through summer to have a lighter course load during the busier times of their athletic season. We are here to provide options and explain alternatives to create a customized educational experience.

What is a typical day for a UEA student?

A UEA student typically meets with tutors for two to four hours daily, depending on the student’s course load and preferences. Students customize their weekly schedule to complete schoolwork on days and times that work best. 


I am nervous about moving from a traditional school environment to a virtual curriculum. How can UEA help?

UEA provides full-service academic support that eases the transition for students and their families. Our administrators work closely with students to choose the best curriculum options to meet individual goals. We help students adjust to a new learning environment through matching them with experienced tutors and providing administrative oversight and support. 


Do you offer admissions counseling and test prep services?

UEA offers outstanding admissions counseling services by experienced admissions advisors. Combined with our test prep experts, UEA’s admissions-focused program ensures the best outcome for each student’s goals. 

Students enrolled in UEA full time begin the college counseling process in their freshman year. We use a narrative approach to admissions that builds on student interests and strengths in order to ensure that our students stand out in the applicant pool.

How does UEA help my prospects of gaining a spot on an NCAA team?

UEA has dedicated NCAA advisors who are former coaches at NCAA schools. These advisors work in conjunction with our admissions team in order to streamline the process and help students attain their goal. UEA’s year-round students complete coursework that ensures NCAA eligibility. 

Where do classes take place?

Our students can meet virtually, in home, or at UEA.  


Can I take classes with other students? 

UEA offers group and individual tutoring. Our year-round students are encouraged to attend weekly group sessions.

What clubs and social activities does UEA offer?

UEA offers many social outings throughout the school year. Our students meet for activities such as movie nights, bowling, and trivia nights at local venues.

Our students develop their resumes through participation in a variety of clubs and community service organizations, including our Social Impact Board and ambassadorships for the Equus Foundation.

“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. Now that I am in my junior year, everyone at UEA is open to help with the college process and is there to alleviate stress in any way they can. 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.
