A unique, online independent school for pupils aged 12 to 18
Welcome to Minerva’s Virtual Academy at Vilas Tennis Punta Cana.
A unique 100% online independent school for athletes aged 12-18.
Minerva’s Virtual Academy is built upon four pillars.
Virtual Learning Platform
Each day, our young athletes log into Minerva's Virtual Learning Platform at their club environment. Here, they work through virtual modules of academic work set by Minerva's teachers, at their own pace. These modules contain video, audio, text and discussion-based teaching materials. They deliver a challenging and gamified GCSE and A Level learning experience, giving pupils the power to reflect, revise, test, then master and move on the next topic.
For the all important face-to-face contact, students log in for Live Lessons after they have completed a module of work on the VLP. Minerva's Live Lessons are led by highly experienced teachers who help pupils deepen and apply their learning. By running through what pupils have already learned, our teachers ensure their knowledge has been retained and fix remaining gaps. These lessons are timetabled so each pupils knows exactly when to log in.
Unlike other schools, each athlete es assigned a personal mentor to help bring out the best in them. A true ally on the pupil's educational journey, their mentor meets with each pupil fortnightly and can be contacted at any time via email or chat. It is the mentor's job to oversee all aspects of our pupil's academic progress, including their self-study schedule, pastoral wellbeing and involvement in school life. Mentors help guide student athletes stay on top of their studies and wellbeing whilst balancing their sporting commitments wit their learning.
Here's where it all comes together. We create an entire ecosystem around our athletes so they become part of a true school community, making friends with other students who are similar to them in many ways. They'll meet young footballers, tennis players, swimmers, West End stars, musicians - all kind of pupils who are striking out on a different path and need time and support to focus on their early careers.
