Tennis Academy

The Ross School Tennis Academy (RSTA) offers an unusual and dynamic program for national and international junior players that combines an engaging, global curriculum with the highest level of competitive tennis training available. Designed for USTA/ITF players in grades 7–12 and post-graduates, the Academy is the first in the New York City area to have a full academic program with a complete physical and mental conditioning program. In addition, unlike other tennis academies, RSTA is a small, intimate program that allows student-athletes to develop lasting relationships with coaches while receiving personalized instruction. Students who attend the Academy experience high-performance tennis training while studying alongside their peers in a stimulating college preparatory learning community following a regular academic year.

Located on the Upper School campus of Ross School, the Academy is part of this accredited day and boarding school. Ross School enjoys an ideal setting on the East End of Long Island, a place where magnificent beaches and breathtaking natural beauty are the norm. We are just 100 miles from New York City, home of the US Open, and three major international airports. Boarders from the New York City area can easily commute home on weekends by train or bus. We also enjoy being in one of the most competitive tennis regions in the country with frequent weekend tournaments held nearby.
