NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Global test prep leader Kaplan Test Prep and 360 Football Academy, founded by Ray Lewis and Hannibal Navies of the NFL, team up to offer their scholar athlete participants SAT and ACT prep and college admissions guidance. 360 Football Academy was founded by NFL stars Ray Lewis and Hannibal Navies to provide scholar athletes a comprehensive year-round curriculum administered in collaboration with the most well respected and accomplished firms in both athletics and academics with the goal of its graduates thriving in college. This year, 360 Football Academy will be held in Baltimore from July 8 to 12 at the Arena Club and is comprised of a week-long on-site training on and off the field along with year-round web-based education. During the on-site component, student-athletes will participate in a range of high-energy, skill-building interactive activities, both athletic and academic.
“We built 360 Football Academy to breed leaders on and off the field. We will expose these young athletes to the same sports performance and best football techniques that have kept me at the top of my game for over 16 years in the NFL. Most importantly, with Kaplan, we will teach them that if they dream of going to the NFL they must first dream of going to college,” stated Ray Lewis.
Hannibal Navies said, “The 360 Football Academies go beyond athletics. Our goal is to help develop a well-rounded scholar athlete who fully understands the importance of education, long-term career goals and service to their community. We think that working with Kaplan to provide the best preparation for high-stakes exams to get into college helps to achieve this goal.”
On site, Kaplan Test Prep experts will offer an introduction to the SAT and ACT, which are consistently ranked by college admissions officers as the second most important factor in the admissions process, just behind grades in college prep courses like Advanced Placement. 360 Football Academy students will also attend a college admissions workshop to learn how to become better applicants and improve their chances of getting into their top college choices.
Justin Serrano, president of K-12 and college prep programs for Kaplan Test Prep, noted the organizations’ shared belief in the importance of college in setting students on the path to success throughout life, adding, “We are proud to continue our partnership with 360 Football Academy because the organization shares our objective of increasing the number of students who successfully complete high school and go on to attend college.”
Off-site, all 360 Football Academy participants will have access to the following Kaplan course offerings:
