The Junior Asian Golf Academy (JAGA) has announced plans to establish a hybrid High School learning program in Hua Hin. This will be in partnership with the Black Mountain Golf Club and the Northern Pre-University.
The Northern Pre-University will provide tier 1 international High School education, which follows the Ontario Ministry of Education requirements towards a grade 12 high school diploma and University eligibility. Combined with a certified golf program, the Junior Asian Golf Academy curriculum will offer a path for junior golfers from around the world, to further their academic ambitions and develop golfing skills at an international standard golfing facility.
JAGA will offer students the opportunity to live, train, and study at Black Mountain Golf Club, providing them a unique experience of improving their golfing skills and furthering their academic prospects, at the same time. This is described as a complete golf program, with an international coach and student accommodation at the Black Mountain Golf Club.
Black Mountain features not only world-class golf but the latest in golf technology administered by professional staff, monitoring and reporting student-golfer progress.
Thailand is seen as a rich source of rising young golfing talent. JAGA will arrange a full competition schedule, away and home, to play competitive golf with the best young talent, locally, and internationally.
The combined program will allow students to pursue their dream of pursuing professional golf and all its benefits, while elevating their chances of being accepted by the best Universities around the world, with tier 1 academic education.
The program is led by Head of School, Dr. Cell Dilon and an in-house international PGA coach. Student-athletes will be visited twice per year by NCAA recruiting teams, with a supplementary trip and tour to the US to visit top US schools annually. The NCAA is the top competition in U.S. collegiate golf.
The program follows the international school year and will begin in September 2023 and be completed in early June 2024. Enrollment will be limited to 28 student-athletes in the 2022-23 seasons.
Hybrid learning allows for flexible classroom study and a flexible learning environment in the event travel is required. There will be a complete choice of academic subjects, ensuring student-golfers maximize their options when considering post-high school learning and golfing options including the NCAA, Europe, Canada, Australia, and other global destinations.
The academic program allows for 120 hours of classroom study per course, fulfilling the requirements for an internationally recognised Canadian high school diploma, covering sciences, maths, arts and humanities.
Golf includes 8 – 10 hours of training with a golf coach per week, 2 rounds on 9-hole golf course per week, 2 rounds of 18-hole golf course per week, access to short game and driving range facilities.
Student-athletes will reside in the Black Mountain Villas, on-site at Black Mountain. Student life aims to create well rounded individuals who excel in golf and academics, while making a positive contribution to society.
