Do you dream of gradua­ting from the best univer­si­ties in the world? With our program we push you into the elite!


After having placed over 2,000 athletes, we know that many young athletes have a consi­derable respect for the English language and are concerned about meeting the requi­re­ments of univer­si­ties. We will there­fore not leave you alone and offer you profes­sional language courses in test prepa­ra­tion for the TOEFL, SAT / ACT and GMAT / GRE. Let’s take this hurdle toge­ther!

Why are the tests so important?


The SAT test in parti­cular has a direct influ­ence on an academic scho­l­ar­ship. You can get up to $ 20,000 for excep­tio­nally good results.


College teams only have a limited number of athletic scho­l­ar­s­hips avail­able. For this reason, U.S. coaches look out for athletes with good academic perfor­mance as they qualify for a higher amount of academic scho­l­ar­s­hips.


Espe­cially elite univer­si­ties like Harvard, Princeton or Yale have very high demands on their appli­cants. If you want to go to one of these univer­si­ties, you have to achieve great results on the tests as well.


We are very proud of our current test prepa­ra­tion. After instal­ling the new system, our athletes were able to improve by an average of 15% in the tests. That diffe­rence can make the diffe­rence between thousands of dollars in an athletic scho­l­ar­ship or accep­t­ance to an elite univer­sity.
When prepa­ring our athletes, we rely on indi­vi­dual support with a deter­mi­na­tion of the status quo. This indi­vi­dual support has the advan­tage that, compared to prepa­ra­tion with lear­ning books or group courses, you learn very inter­ac­tively and can parti­ally simu­late the real test situa­tion. In addi­tion, we have the chance to promote every athlete indi­vi­du­ally and on the basis of their current perfor­mance.

We offer:

  • 1:1 teaching units of 45 min
  • Perfor­mance analysis at the start of prepa­ra­tion
  • Prepa­ra­tion stra­tegy for supple­men­ta­tion outside the units


Our top prio­rity is to advise our custo­mers compre­hen­si­vely at the highest level. After 10 years in the place­ment of athletes in the US, we come to the conclu­sion that college sports have a higher focus on athletic aspects. When it comes to team sports such as soccer, Euro­pean talents are often left behind when they start their careers in college.
With this know­ledge, we have worked inten­si­vely to create a program for you that will also prepare you athle­ti­cally for sport in the USA and increase your chances of recei­ving a scho­l­ar­ship at a top univer­sity.


Since November 2019 we have been working with graduate sports scien­tist Kevin Speer, who works speci­fi­cally with compe­ti­tive athletes on their athletic abili­ties as part of his “Deve­lo­p­Ath­letes” project. Whether strength, speed or coor­di­na­tion, Kevin will help you to get to the next level. He has years of expe­ri­ence working with athletes in a wide variety of sports and was himself a Strength & Condi­tio­ning Coach at the Univer­sity of Florida. In addi­tion, he has prepared athletes such as Alex­ander Ehrens­berger and Fabian Weitz for their NCAA D1 careers in American football.

Do you have what it takes to study at the best univer­si­ties in the world? Ivy League univer­si­ties like Harvard Univer­sity or Princeton Univer­sity are the ulti­mate. A degree from one of these schools not only guaran­tees the best condi­tions for a successful profes­sional career and a huge network of successful univer­sity alumni, but also offers you a very special expe­ri­ence on campus and in the sports team.
In the past, some Scho­l­ar­book athletes have enjoyed this unique oppor­tu­nity. (Table elite students)
