WHAT’S THE ONE THING YOU HAVE TO DO TODAY TO BE YOUR BEST?
At BGGA we believe that the college process is one of the most important aspects of Academy life and you cannot start the process early enough.
And at BGGA, College Planning and Placement is a part of your tuition. It is not an additional fee.
The College Planning and Placement team works to find the best possible college fit for every student, based on their individual golf and academic levels. We want to ensure during their years at the Academy they have been adequately prepared and equipped to be eligible and accepted into the best college program for them. College coaches are attracted to our concept of creating independence through education. College coaches see a player to be more college ready after their experiences living and training on the BGGA campus.
THERE’S A PATH FOR EVERYONE.
The college placement process can be quite daunting without a solid plan and clear direction, especially for international students, who are not familiar with the strict National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) requirements and rules.
Our qualified and experienced College Planning and Placement Team, together with the coaching team, has a strong network of college coach relationships that can help eliminate many of the unknowns and identify the right program for every student. We will lead and guide you through the intricacies of the process and give every student the best opportunity to make the right decision for them.
Whether students aspire to NCAA Division I, II or III or a NAIA school, there is a college for everyone.
