Collaboration Aims to Drive Excellence in Education and Athletics
ELK GROVE, Calif. – April 25, 2019 – Elk Grove Charter School is excited to announce its partnership with Elk Grove Soccer. The school’s unique education delivery system is a natural fit for the needs of elite soccer players. Elk Grove Charter School has worked with students and families of our community for nearly 20 years and is a fully accredited program through WASC, UC/CSU, and NCAA. As an Elk Grove Unified School District authorized charter school, we have the support of one of the largest districts in the state.
Partnering with Elk Grove Soccer aims to leverage the school’s educational model with the expertise and passion of the club in order to drive excellence in education and athletics. In addition, the program will provide the opportunity to recapture family time that is all too often lost to the demands of elite performance. We look forward to the successes of our students as we continue with this partnership.
Marc LaVine, principal of Elk Grove Charter proudly shared, “As an educator and parent in the Elk Grove Community, I’m excited for this partnership. The more I meet with Andrew and the staff at Elk Grove Soccer it is clear that the mission of the club and the school are aligned. We work with individual students and families focused on meeting their specific needs and we measure success one student at a time. More importantly, we celebrate our students’ achievements based on their goals and dreams. I look forward to our work with the club and families of Elk Grove Soccer as this partnership develops.”
