Our  Beliefs

PURPOSEFUL, QUALITY SUPPORT

Each A2A Academy advisor is both a certified college consultant and a former college athlete. When it comes to putting our best foot forward for families, QUALITY matters!

TRANSPARENT PRICING

We believe you should know exactly what you are paying for and what value the A2A Academy provides. We don't believe in fear-based sales tactics or taking advantage of families. 

FOCUSED ON IMPACT

It's not about the volume of families, but rather the impact we can make for each individual family enrolled in the A2A Academy. 

Academics

When it comes to applying to your dream college, academic wins are just as important as athletic ones. We’ll show you how to succeed academically, and how to use that success to stand out from other recruits

athletics

Our services are tailored for athletes of all levels. We help our student-athletes evaluate various college and universities to determine potential matches between their athletic program and your unique skillset.

Personal fit

A successful college career is built on a stable foundation. We take the time to ensure that the schools you select align with your personal needs, so you can get the most out of your college years. College is a 40 year decision, and our student-athletes know it.

Financial aid

Let's make college dreams happen without breaking the bank. We help your family navigate financial aid opportunities like a pro and evaluate college costs with your personal finances in mind. We promote a stress free - and budget friendly - journey.

Frequently asked questions

What is the A2A Academy?

The A2A Academy is a comprehensive, unbiased college prep program tailored specifically for student-athletes. 


Developed by former college athletes turned college counselors, the A2A Academy offers 360-degree support for families, covering athletics, academics, financial aid, personal fit, and beyond!

Is the A2A Academy a college recruiting service?
While our program delves into recruitment extensively and offers personalized support throughout the college recruiting process, we prefer to refrain from labeling ourselves as a recruiting service. As former college athletes, we recognize that only about 20% of a student-athlete's college experience revolves around athletics. Therefore, we emphasize preparing our clients for success in the remaining 80% as well.

By focusing on all aspects of being a successful student-athlete, the A2A Academy has established itself as the premier full-suite support program for families with student-athletes aiming to continue their athletic careers in college.

Our mission is centered on setting young people up for success not only during their college years but also for the next 40 years of their lives.
Does the A2A Academy guarantee scholarships?

Does the A2A Academy guarantee scholarships? No. I wish we had magical powers, but unfortunately no one can guarantee scholarship money.

Can we help with scholarships?Absolutely. Our program is designed to help student-athletes optimize their scholarship opportunities on AND off the field to create the best possible financial packages for our students. Our students, on average, are awarded almost double the national average scholarship amount - which just so happens to also be nearly 4x the cost of our most expensive program. 
How do I get started with A2A Academy?

To get started with the A2A Academy, please connect with us HERE.

We'll be able to talk more about what you want to accomplish, how we can help you get there, and when it makes the most sense to start. Once we've chosen a start time, we'll set up the onboarding process and you'll be on your way!

Note: Due to the limited number of seats available and the volume of applications, we are only able to accept a specific number of enrollments each semester. This is to ensure that we can provide the highest quality support to those student-athletes and families enrolled. 

Why should I enroll my child in the A2A Academy?

Attending college is an investment that requires significant time, money, and effort. Even more so when considering an athletic path. Although it is possible to manage this process yourself, most families do not have the time, energy, or insight to effectively pursue the goals they truly desire. 


Families choose to work with the A2A Academy primarily because we provide a proven method, cadence, and support system to help our student-athletes put their best foot forward on AND off the field. We can focus on helping you optimize your college options while you can focus on the most important thing - being a family.

How much does the A2A Academy cost?

The short answer is "it depends", but we're big on transparency at the A2A Academy so instead of giving you a wide range of costs that spans across four years of high school, we encourage you to fill out our price quote form at the link below to get your personalized quote. 


Each quote comes with more detailed information about our Academy program, and an opportunity to meet with one of our advisors to discuss the program - and cost - in more detail.
