Study Center & Training Ground
The 6S Academy: Study Center & Training Ground is designed to offer students the most comprehensive academic, athletic, and personal support for their scholastic needs. We are not a school; rather, we host students and assist them with the curriculum from their chosen/assigned virtual or home school offerings. Students complete their online instruction with the support and supervision of the 6S Academy staff, while also receiving enriching academic and personal development opportunities that are often missing in traditional school settings. This is all blended with physical activity and athlete training sessions, scheduled systematically throughout the sessions.
The 6S Academy offers specialized educational, developmental, and performance programming for elementary, middle, and high school students. In recognizing the increasing limitations to traditional school settings, the Academy has been established to provide students with more of what they need, and less of what they don't. In many cases, the need is for more flexibility in schedule to tend to students' interests, passions, and pursuits, which are inherently limited by traditional school options. In other cases, the needs are more developmental, and consist of personalized mental and physical support that is not often found in conventional school options.
Our curricular and co-curricular learning opportunities are derived from the 6S Institute for Brain & Body Development, and designed to either enhance existing scholastic experiences, or to formulate comprehensive alternatives to public and private school options. Examples of co-curricular programming themes and lessons include:
Strength: Mental Toughness, Confidence, Grit, and Resilience
Stamina: Concentration, Determination, Attention/Focus, and Persistence
Stability: Emotional Intelligence, Frustration Tolerance, and Anger Management
Skill: Study Skills, Coping Skills, Test-Taking Strategies, and Communication
Stress: Anxiety Management, Growth Mindset, Mindfulness, and Relaxation
Status: Goal Setting, Self-Awareness, Motivation, and Personal & Professional Ambition
These mental skills are blended into each students study sessions, along with unique programming from the 6S Institute’s academic offerings.
In addition to the scholastic offerings of the study center, the 6S Academy also combines athletic and fitness skill development into each of our sessions. The key to elite performance is not a secret; nor is it as easy as people hope for. It is, however, trainable. After decades of research and experience, we have identified the “6 S’s of Success” the key combination to exceptional achievement. The individual elements of elite performance are not revolutionary; but the method in which they are collectively trained is.
Our System of 6S ensures that each of the six factors is incorporated into workout and athlete training programs. Examples include:
Strength: Resistance training, weight lifting, plyometrics.
Stamina: Endurance training & conditioning.
Stability: Body balance and core development.
Skill: Footwork, coordination, speed/running technique, reaction time.
Stress: Interval training, increased degree of difficulty, intensity variations
Status: Fitness levels, body metrics, performance records
The 6S Academy utilizes these principles of the 6S Institute to deliver an integrated approach to athletic and fitness skills for children and teenagers with high performance aspirations. Each facet of our training is designed to enhance existing physical skills, and/or build new ones. In addition to the physical dimensions of training, we also combine mental skills and strategy in each workout, thereby delivering the essential combined experience of body and brain optimization.
