Long Term Tennis Program with School

Since its creation, Vilas Tennis Academy has developed young players, on the tennis court as well as in the classroom. Training methods developed at Vilas Tennis Academy allow each of our players to complete both intensive tennis and school, in a highly challenging environment, with the ultimate goal of becoming a professional tennis player or to play college tennis with a scholarship.

During their training at Vilas Tennis Academy, players not only learn how to increase their level and knowledge, they also discover how to become independent and self driven, how to handle pressure of everyday life, how to push their mental and physical limits day after day. Vilas Tennis Academy teaches players how to become responsible adults, capable of becoming successful on the tennis court and in life.

Additional information

The values of education

Vilas Tennis Academy and Agora Portals daily co-work is based on providing students with the necessary knowledge following educational project based on excellence and innovation. This process is complemented by a strong commitment to values of education. Students learn in an interdisciplinary way with the values that we believe are most needed in our today’s society.

  • Self-improvement.
  • Commitment.
  • Empathy.
  • Tolerance.

Responsibility

Once secured the two gears that move our project, we can influence the importance of our actions, our thoughts, our tasks, our environment. To be responsible or have responsibilities we need to be decent and respectful. As our students grow, mature and develop, they acquire the necessary responsibility that allows them to apply their learning in all areas of their lives.

Dignity and Respect

We believe that one has dignity and respect for other only when he has it for himself. Our Secret is based on an objective, the Dignity and Respect we have for ourselves and for others.

Companionship and Effort

Immersed in the culture of effort and discipline, we understand the educational process as a challenge, a goal, divided into smaller goals that, through hard work, perseverance, self-improvement, discipline and thoroughness, the students at Agora Portals will achieve. But as the end does not justify the means, this path should be based on kindness, respect, trust, generosity, gratitude and solidarity. Cooperative work is an essential tool in our ideology. Humility. Within our project we must understand differences, integrity, selflessness, willingness to help others… Since we believe that being humble with others allows us to grow internally. Educating with humility we will make them be respected all their life. Through a process of educational coaching, our students learn to manage their emotions, their fears, their concerns… always guided by committed staff and aware that our mission, beyond the academic and/or disciplinary, is designed to influence, converge and make our students flow, forming valid citizens for today’s society.

A key factor in this environment of respect and tolerance is the atmosphere one feels in every corner of Vilas Academy and Agora Portals, thanks to the numerous different cultures in our school and that lead to a social and emotional enrichment that benefits all the educational community.
