About the school

  • Long description:
    The FSG concept is a unique concept based on the three most important pillars in a student-athlete’s career: Sport, Education and Life skills. These fit in a tailor made program to create an ideal environment for the student- athlete.

    FSG Academy works in combination with parents, teachers, trainers, coaches, sports clubs and boarding parents to create an environment that focuses fully on excelling in our sport’s programs while at the same time living on our beautiful campus. The uniquely Dutch cultural sports environment makes it possible to compete in your own sport at a club and be directly integrated in a team of your level. We seek an appropriate balance between training programs, competitions and academics. We strive to develop time management skills designed to help student- athletes know how to manage and structure their time. This supports an improvement in self-confidence contributing to success and underpinning a determined mind-set.

    Boarding School

    The FSG Academy is a first class private institute in the Netherlands where athletes can combine academics with a fulltime sports program.

    At the FSG Academy all athletes will either follow the international curriculum, the Dutch curriculum or the preparation programs for the SAT, ACT or TOEFL exams. Graduates can easily enter a gap or post-graduate year at FSG Academy. A tailor-made program is provided including SAT, ACT, and TOEFL training that can ease them into a university. We help place the athlete at high performing universities in the US and Canada that match their goals and desires. Often those universities offer a full scholarship.

    The home of the Royal Eagles is also at the FSG Academy. At the home of the Eagles every athlete can relax, study or prepare for training during the day.
