A Letter to Donors

180 Degrees Academy provides a Triple "A" Effect: Academics, Accountability, and Athletic training for elite basketball players which empowers them with impactful tools to ensure they have a successful academic and athletic journey. We provide opportunities for players to excel while mitigating the challenges and issues many elite players face during and after their playing careers.

180 Degrees Academy is in partnership with Houston Texas Connection, an accredited state certified online program that provides engaging learning experiences that meets all Texas educational and high school graduation requirements. We motivate players to take responsibility for their learning and athletic growth to achieve their best outcome.

We pride ourselves in serving elite athletes with academic deficiencies. For 10 months, our program engages these students from various backgrounds by putting them on a path to further their education and pursue their passion of getting to the next level by way of basketball.

We provide these student athletes with an array of needs and resources that ensure their success on and off the court. Academically we provide Tutors, Translators, Academic and Career Readiness Coaches. We provide Room and Board for our out-of-state students along with transportation. Counseling and Mentorship are also staples of our program. In athletic training athletes are provided with Skilled Specific Development Training Coaches.

This is only made possible through generous funding we have received from members of our community. We are currently seeking donations to be able to continue to provide our student athletes access to our Academy.
