TENNIS + ACADEMICS
SHPT is proud to offer its Full-Time Developmental Program in conjunction with the highest levels of academia, in either a traditional classroom setting at American Heritage School or via online virtual schooling at Broward Virtual School.
American Heritage School (AHS), an American private school in Plantation, Florida (only two miles from SHPT), is modeled after Southern universities in both its buildings and curriculum. Through AHS’ liberal-arts curriculum, students are instructed and supported by small class sizes in each of the three divisions: Pre Primary School (Pre-K through kindergarten), Lower School (grades 1 through grade 6), and Upper School (grades 7 through 12). The college preparatory curriculum at AHS serves ‘to develop critical thinking skills, problem solving abilities, and lifelong learning.’ There are over 50 student clubs and organizations, and multiple service opportunities on and off campus including pre-law, pre-engineering, and pre-med programs. AHS is currently ranked the #1 private school in the nation for Mu Alpha Theta and #2 in the nation out of all public and private schools. American Heritage also has a wide program in Visual and Fine Arts
Broward Virtual School (BVS) offers full-time enrollment to students in grades K-12 through an online educational delivery system. Home educated students in grades 6-12 may enroll part-time as well. BVS offers equitable access to high quality, individualized education, through the Internet and other distance learning technologies. BVS offers students the opportunity to earn a standard high school diploma entirely online. BVS was the first and only district virtual school to be rated as an “A” school by the Florida Department of Education in 2010. BVS offers courses and a diploma approved by the NCAA. As a component of The School Board of Broward County, Broward Virtual School is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and Commission on International and Trans-Regional Accreditation (CITA). The BVS administrative office is located in Davie, Florida inside the BECON TV building. BVS operates under the provisions of Florida Statutes 1002.37 and 1002.45.
