AdvancED’s mission is to lead and empower the educational community to ensure that all learners realize their full potential.

“We are extremely pleased to have earned this recognition from AdvancED.” says Peter Smith, President of US Performance Academy. “The visiting committee recognized several aspects of our academic program that were innovative, set us apart, and were major academic strengths unique to our school. USPA has rigorous academic standards, hard working student-athletes, and a passionate team of dedicated staff. Having further validation and approval from the accreditation community is rewarding. We realize this is just the beginning of our growth and look forward to the continued evolution of our school community.”
