The Full Time Academy is a nine-month program beginning in mid-August. Academic students begin their informative and engaging instructional program Monday through Friday after school. Students receive instruction both on the course and the practice facilities. Students have weekend access to our courses, giving them additional time to practice what they learned during the week and build camaraderie with other JPGA students.

Smith Stearns offers some of the world’s most acclaimed tennis programs, especially designed to help young people develop athletically while supporting their academic, social and emotional growth during the important development years.
We provide a high-performance level of instruction in an elite setting — emphasizing individual instruction in low ratio camps or one-on-one settings to ensure quality interaction between junior players and world-class coaches.
We are able to address a student’s “entire game” with a combination of drilling, strategy, mental preparedness, patterns of play, point set up, and match play. To ensure a high level of technical development, we utilize both soft and hard court training to promote good footwork, sound tactics, and a disciplined approach to playing extended points. In addition to good court performance, we also encourage students to develop good character, sportsmanship, and overall integrity.
By limiting enrollment, we are able to ensure a more personal atmosphere and provide more one-on-one time to each player enrolled at the academy. It’s our way of affording each student the individual time necessary for his or her ultimate success.
Smith Stearns offers year-round, Monday-through-Saturday training for players of all levels — unranked, or state, sectionally, nationally and world-ranked players. Full-Time, weekly, holiday, and summer programs are available for students of all ages.
Full-time students can opt to stay with house parents and attend local schools. This residence program ensures that students are well-supervised and well-supported.
