Coaches have become increasingly more appreciative of athletes who enroll in postgraduate programs over those who do not. Simply put, junior athletes are prepared in ways not available outside of Post-Grad training. Unfortunately, many graduating seniors are simply not ready physically, technically or competitively to dominate their desired level of collegiate competition. Attending a golf prep school like IJGA is one of the most powerful things that could be done to prepare for college. We facilitate a program designed to build graduates into fierce competitors through mental strength training, technical skills and a physical conditioning that’s ready for any challenge.
Why Post Grad / Gap Year?
There is a growing demand for specialized training for students who are seeking growth before moving forward with future academic and athletic plans.
Many graduating seniors today are not ready physically, technically and/or competitively to excel at their desired level of college sports.
Some student-athletes are searching for a year to live independently in order to better prepare for the rigors of college life.
There may be academic reasons why taking an extra year between high school and college is the best course of action (i.e., SAT/ACT issues, ESL or TOEFL issues, GPA problems, the chance to take college credits in advance, etc.).
The IJGA Post Graduate Program offers the solution to all of these situations.

Colleges fully recognize the value of students enrolling after a post grad experience. Coaches appreciate that athletes from post grad programs enroll with four full years of eligibility remaining – unlike athletes that have competed at the junior college level.
Parents, rest assured that the post grad experience will help your sons and daughters acclimate to college so much better. These combined elements lay a strong foundation for ensuring long-term collegiate success.
