Academic Preparation

As a post-graduate basketball program, we are not a school or a college. We do have ACT/SAT Prep classes included as part of the tuition costs for the program. Along with study for those important tests, we offer our Life Skills Program and Business Leaders Programs which do have an educational component to them. If you desire to attend college classes while part of our program, we can discuss the best options for you to pursue that path. Each player at FCP has individual requirements, and we strive to meet those needs.
