Statement from Our Online Partner

Welcome Statement from Christopher Geis
Director of Education, Christa McAuliffe Academy School of Arts and Sciences

I am confident that through our partnership, great things can be accomplished. The ability to give student-athletes a second chance to follow their dreams and empower them to excel in both academics and athletics to reach their goal of a college education and NCAA eligibility can be truly life changing for those individuals who take this opportunity seriously.


Here at Christa McAuliffe Academy School of Arts and Sciences, we look to "Touch the Future" and in partnering with East Coast Prep, we believe that student-athletes have the greatest opportunity to reach their potential in both academics and athletics.


Our online courses, which are research-based, interactive and engaging, in addition to our professional and caring instructor support, will help prepare your student-athletes to meet the NCAA Eligibility requirements and college entrance requirements.

We are looking forward to our partnership with East Coast Prep for this year and on into the future.
