There is more than just great soccer going on at our Academy! Our student athletes take tremendous pride not only on the field, but in the classroom. When asked about the FC Copa Academic Guidance Program, this is what was said:
Rutgers Prep sophomore, Griffin Hooper from the Boys 2002 Black spoke about the academic guidance program saying, “Back in middle school when I realized that my grades were dropping, I scheduled a meeting with Lori and she kind of kicked me in the butt a little. We started doing things to help counteract what I call laziness on my part. We did weekly report cards with all my academic classes, which required me to get grades and comments every Friday from my teachers. This helped me because it really whipped me into shape.”
What is the end result you have taken from this program?
“Only being a sophomore in High School, who hasn’t fully adulted, it firstly it gave me humility. It showed me that I may be a smart individual but if I don’t work at my education, my grades will suffer. Second, it gave me a standard to hold myself to and third it gave me better grades and better feeling for myself, Lori and my parents.”
