In August of 2017, LTP Scholars opened its doors for the first time. In conjunction with the Randy Pate Tennis Academy (RPTA), LTP Scholars sought to provide a rigorous academic program that gave its student-athletes the opportunity to train and learn in the same location. In its first year, LTP Scholars invited twenty-three student-athletes to join its founding class, with grades ranging from sixth to twelfth.
Not only did this founding class have incredible success on the tennis courts, but 98% made the honor roll both semesters by maintaining a high A/B average. Not only that, LTP Scholars' student-athletes participated in over five AP classes and nearly forty honors courses throughout the year. In its first year, LTP Scholars graduated two high school seniors, both with high honors.
The 2018-2019 is shaping up to be equally as successful with an already full roster of student-athletes and waiting list. We are excited about what the future holds for LTP Scholars and RPTA.
