INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS WELCOME
We welcome players from all over the world at Jackson-Bridge Tennis Academy.
International tennis players are more than welcome at Jackson-Bridge Tennis Academy in California. We pride ourselves on the worldliness of our students from countries like China, Brazil, and India. Our international student-athletes attend a small, private school (Anaheim Discovery School) in the mornings, and train in the afternoons. Additional academic options include Mater Dei High School.
The JBTA difference is in all of the personal attention our tennis students receive on the court, in the classroom, and in boarding. The personal attention provides information and knowledge as the framework for success. The Jackson-Bridge Tennis Academy curriculum focuses on the sharing of successful information and training. Growing and maturing in an educational and supportive environment is the Jackson-Bridge way.
