Pitbull’s SLAM! Academy Coming to Atlanta
SLAM! Academy of Atlanta announced today via press release that they will be opening its doors to children in the Atlanta Public Schools attendance zone for the 2018-2019 school year!
The SLAM! Academy is backed and supported by Mr. Worldwide, who has always been an advocate for bettering education.
“We are extremely proud of our efforts to bring the SLAM! academic model to the children of Atlanta. Pitbull’s vision of making education fun through sports infused instruction is here to stay. We feel the unique nature of the program and the access to a large network of professionals in education and the sports industry are providing our students with opportunities they may not have had otherwise. We are looking forward to SLAM Academy being among the best schools in Atlanta,” says SLAM Atlanta board member, Travis Stroud Sr.
In the 2018-2019 school year, SLAM! Atlanta will welcome students in grades kindergarten through 3rd, with plans to serve grades K–7 during the first charter term and grades K–12 at full capacity.
Throughout all grade levels, sports themes are incorporated into the curriculum to engage students and help nurture their natural curiosity and love for learning by helping them better connect and comprehend course work. SLAM! Academy‘s mission is to provide an engaging, challenging and supportive learning environment so every student can “SLAM it out of the park” both in and out of the classroom.
