IJGA ANNOUNCES CONSOLIDATION OF ITS ACADEMIES TO RIGHT-SIZE ITS FOOTPRINT

The International Junior Golf Academy (IJGA) today announced the Old Carolina campus will cease operations at the end of this academic year, May 31st 2020. IJGA plans to consolidate operations at its Bishops Gate campus, in Florida.

Following IJGA’s considerable investment in the golf team under Jonathan Yarwood and in the Old Carolina campus, enrollment grew 50% the past two years.  However, as a result of the COVID-19 virus, the organization expects lower recruitment and enrollment in both of the IJGA campuses for the 2020/21 school year from our majority international markets.  Therefore, after careful consideration, IJGA decided to consolidate the two campuses at the IJGA, Bishops Gate in Orlando, Florida.  

All affected IJGA, Old Carolina, students will be welcomed in IJGA, Bishops Gate, and at their partner Montverde Academy – an exceptional private school with a national and international reputation in both academics and sports. Additional information will be shared with all stakeholders in the coming days.

“We understand this presents a challenge for many of our students and their families, and we will work with everyone interested in continuing their relationship with IJGA,” said Andrew Summers, CEO. “While we sincerely regret ever having to close an academy, the goal is to strengthen IJGA in the face of this global crisis to ensure IJGA remains the premier golf academy,” said Summers.“

Although this will affect partner Heritage Academy, the school will continue serving the needs of the local population and other sports training organizations.
