High Performance Athlete Programme

Your Athletic and Academic Journey

Are you a high performing athlete with ambitions to elevate your performance on the field, explore opportunities in health and sports industries, or aim for a college scholarship in the US? Our High Performance Athlete Programme (HPAP) is designed to support your aspirations, blending elite sports training with academic pathways. Students in Years 9, 10, 11, and 12 are invited to express their interest in our elite programme, which is available at no additional cost to the current school fees for those who are selected.

Being a Tyndale athlete comes with the significant benefit of detailed, step-by-step support while navigating the complex US Sports Scholarship process. Tyndale Christian School has a proud tradition of producing US Sports Scholarship recipients, and our programme is continually expanding. A wide range of college and university scholarships are available across numerous sports in the US.

We welcome students who excel in sports. Our programme isn’t limited to any specific sport; instead, it focuses on enhancing each athlete’s skills in their chosen sport. Our goal is to identify and improve athletes’ weak spots with the help of our multi-disciplinary team. Applications open annually in Term 3. Shortlisted candidates will go through an interview process in late Term 3 or early Term 4.
