Tennis & School

The Voyager Tennis Academy Tennis & School program allows elite tennis players the opportunity to further develop their tennis careers whilst completing their academic studies. The program allows for daily tennis training whilst our student-athletes complete their education at the highest levels. The program has a school day structure to allow our students to dedicate the appropriate time to tennis training each day.  

The aim of the program is for students to successfully graduate from Year 12 with an HSC ATAR worthy of a U.S. or Australian College/University Scholarship. We have a 100% success rate with students graduating and passing NCAA clearing house. 

This program is for domestic and international students with students from United States, Singapore, New Zealand, India, China, Korea, France, Japan, Indonesia and more. For more information for players coming from overseas, please visit our International students page.

The Voyager Tennis Academy prides itself on providing flexible learning options for students recognizing their performance demands whilst completing their secondary schooling at the highest level via either the prestigious The McDonald College or our distance education partners.

The McDonald College

The McDonald College is a private, independent school founded over 30 years ago with the performance student in mind. Recognizing to achieve mastery in any field, dedication and a significant amount of time is required to develop the skills to become world class.

The College understands that students working at an elite performance level will require understanding and support to attend tournaments and be personally organized and disciplined to complete all academic requirements concurrently.

With the College located 1.4km from Sydney Olympic Park, our students are transported daily to and from the venue gaining access to our world class venue & coaching team. This ultimately enables our students the opportunity to pursue their dreams and aspirations without the usual sacrifices both parents and students have to make.

Distance education

For families looking for additional flexibility to meet the demanding needs of the student athlete we also have the option of the distance education pathway.

There are many benefits of distance education, some of which are as follows:

  • Freedom and flexibility – Students have the freedom to attend school no matter where they are in the world within a time frame that suits.
  • Time effectiveness – Students can work at their own pace.
  • More learning options – Students have a wide range of subject choices that are not offered at all schools.

Who is distance education for?

Distance education is not for everyone, it can be a challenging and lonely road without the social dynamic of classmates and the teacher driven model which a traditional school has to offer. For a successful student we typically see the following characteristics & environment:

  • Highly focused and motivated
  • Strong time management skills
  • Committed
  • Supportive parents/family
