This case study examines the evidence to answer the critical question:

Is Edmentum Courseware associated with successful outcomes for high-achieving, college-bound students?

In 2017, two organizations, Total Package Hockey Center of Excellence (TPH) and Edmentum, collaborated to create an education system that would support the high levels of academic achievement required for student-athletes to be successful in K–12 education and accepted into NCAA programs at top universities. A flexible schedule to accommodate the demands of sport-specific training and competition, coupled with a high-quality virtual learning program, was key to the overall success of these student-athletes.

Even though the TPH and Edmentum partnership has only been in place for about four school years, both middle and high school student-athletes have already been accepted to top university programs, including the University of Notre Dame, University of Wisconsin, University of Michigan, Arizona State University, Boston University, and the University of New Hampshire.

Key Findings

The findings documented in the case study demonstrate that students who enroll in TPH and Edmentum have high academic outcomes that are critical to their success in school and beyond.

  • TPH students outperform the national student average on the SAT and ACT Tests with an average SAT score of 1280 which is 212 points higher than the national average, and an average ACT score of 25, 4 points higher than the national average.
