Knowing the demands and time constraints that karting and motorsports can put on young drivers and their families, the MAXSpeed Group has partnered with the University of Miami Global Academy online middle school and high school (UMGA). UMGA allows Rotax drivers to continue to compete and train, while receiving a quality education designed for their lifestyles.

“We see families rushing their kids to the airports after the last final, and we wanted to alleviate this stress,” explained MAXSpeed Group’s Richard Boisclair. With thirty enrollment start dates per year and access to online classrooms twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week, UMGA students represent thirty-five states and sixty-five different countries. “Working with the University of Miami Global Academy helps our families around the globe balance convenient learning options without sacrificing academic integrity. We are excited to have them as a supporter of the Rotax program.”

RMC-coldstone-USGN2014In addition to offering NCAA-approved courses for busy and aspiring athletes, the highest quality standards from the University of Miami were used in developing an online program that incorporates what parents expect from a college preparatory middle school and high school. Students learn through highly interactive teacher instruction through audio, video, simulations and other technological advances.  Every student is assigned a coach that will assist them with their specific educational needs. The UMGA program has small class sizes and extracurricular activities for students just as any normal high school would.

“Whether our students are seeking to earn a diploma from the University of Miami, trying to get ahead or making up a course, our school provides students with a flexible schedule. Students free up their time to pursue passions and interests that would not be possible, if they were attending a brick and mortar school,” explained Gisela Delgado, UMGA Principal. “UMGA students and their families can choose from 20-week or 10-week courses during the year; three-week courses during the summer and winter; or any of our 120 courses, including honors and Advanced Placement (AP) courses which accommodate learners at every level.”

Not only are high school credits attainable, the University of Miami Global Academy also offers college courses on the web through the University of Miami online program.

The University of Miami Global Academy will host an informational session during the Cold Stone US Grand Nationals on Wednesday, July 16 at 5:30pm to answer any questions from competitors and their families. If you wish to contact UMGA before the event or enroll in the University of Miami Global Academy, please contact Mrs. Gisela Delgado, UMGA Principal at 305-284-2980 or via email at globalacademy@miami.edu.
