Growing up in today’s world can be tough to navigate. It is even tougher if you have a motivated child exploring personal interests, sports, academic potential and trying to find where they fit in with peers.
They will undoubtedly experience ups and downs as they work through challenges and transition to independence in their journey. As a parent, you prepare and hope that journey is as kind and safe as possible. What if there was an environment that existed to support your child holistically, encouraging them to play, learn, explore and evolve their self-confidence without judgment while also developing critical skills that would promote life-long success? An inclusive academy education like that of Unisus could be a great option for your child.
At Unisus, all academy students are supported equally within the scholar-athlete environment. That environment includes consistent encouragement to think outside the box, explore new ways of solving a problem or challenge, practise skill competencies and work together to develop innovative ideas.
Through the learning journey at Unisus, your child is supported in their academic studies with an IB World School program. According to International Baccalaureate, “Students studying at IB World Schools will be encouraged to think independently and drive their own learning, take part in programs of education that can lead them to some of the highest-ranking universities around the world, become more culturally aware, through the development of a second language, and be able to engage with people in an increasingly globalized, rapidly changing world.”
When your child pursues their passion at Unisus in a dance, hockey, golf, ski racing or basketball academy, they will receive world-class coaching and training opportunities not just in their sport but also in whole-body wellness through nutrition, mental health awareness, athlete specific mindset coaching and multi-sport cross-training.
By fostering this balanced approach both inside the learning studios and on the field, ice, stage or court, Unisus instils lifelong success tools known as transferable skills. Once developed, these transferable skills can help your child grow to be a compassionate team member with a strong work ethic and a commitment to completing whatever goal they set out for themselves. As prosperous contributing members of society, they will strive to inspire and lead others to greatness by acting as leaders in all aspects of life. They will develop critical habits in time management to prioritize tasks, meet deadlines in the real world and be lifelong ambassadors of health and wellness. Transferable skills help your child to grow into the innovative leaders that tomorrow is asking for.
Your child can thrive in balancing scholarly academics and developmental athletic achievement. With the scholar-athlete opportunity, your child will adopt a mindset of innovation and inclusivity that knows no bounds. At Unisus, we believe the future is forward. Will you join us?
