WEIL'S ACADEMIC OPTIONS
The Weil Tennis Academy provides our players with the best academic options of any academy in the world. Every player at Weil is prepared to succeed at the appropriate collegiate level, if college tennis is their goal. If professional tennis is the goal, flexible weekly class schedules to allow maximum training opportunities, and independent study contracts allowing for extensive tournament travel, are available for each player. Every training day is coordinated and maximized with a player's academic schedule.
For International Students, we offer I-20 Student Visas for qualified students and classes through the Weil College Preparatory School (Grades 8-12) which is located on the campus of the Weil Tennis Academy.
