2022 Spring Applications are OPEN NOW!
Currently, we envision three paths for graduates through our groundbreaking program:
1. Acceptance into an American university with an esports scholarship – With over 200 US colleges offering around $15 million (USD) annually in scholarships, our program will prepare students to be eligible for such opportunities.
2. Acceptance into a top ranking university through a unique narrative – For students that excel in academics, this program will provide a compelling, one-of-a-kind experience that will help them stand out amongst the applicant pool.
3. Offered a spot on the pro or junior teams at Gen.G Esports – Students that particularly excel in esports may be offered contracts with Gen.G to become professional esports players.
However, as this industry continues to rapidly grow, we truly believe the possibilities are endless. Ultimately, our hope through this program is to equip our students with the confidence to pursue and achieve their dreams.
Since we are utilizing a proprietary curriculum for the program, we cannot go into too much detail. However, the general schedule will be as follows: four hours in the morning will be spent on esports training, learning, and practicing, and then four hours in the afternoon will be spent on academic programs.
For the Fall 2019 Inaugural Semester, we are offering 25 spots for the academy, although this number may slightly be tweaked to optimize the program.
For the Fall 2019 Inaugural Semester, the esports portion will be held on one of the levels of Gen.G Esports Seoul HQ. The academic program will be held in Elite Academy’s facilities.
The program will be run in English. The teaching coaches and portions of the program will accommodate Korean as necessary, but since the students will receive a US-accredited certificate of graduation and the objective is for our students to become global representatives of esports, the primarily language will be English.
Congratulations on taking the first step! Our admissions staff will reach out within a few days to notify if you have qualified for the next step, which is try-outs.
Congratulations! This is a HUGE accomplishment! You now have a limited time to decide whether to accept the offer of being part of this program or not. Depending on the decision date you were accepted for, you have a deadline to respond by. Once you commit, you just have to enroll and that’s it – you will make history as one of the first students to join this revolutionary program!
First of all, do not feel bad. Since this is the inaugural semester, there is an extremely strict criteria and very limited spots. However, this program will continue to grow and start to accept more students and a wider variety of skill levels! We encourage you to apply again whether for the spring semester or the following year. We value your interest in the program and, if this is the right path for you, things will work out!
As long as you have passion for and talent in esports, we want you to apply for this program! For students that excel in other games (other than Overwatch and League of Legends), we will have you on file and contact you when we add your game.
As long as you believe that you have talent and you are extremely passionate about esports, we would still like you to apply! Even if you do not get in for the inaugural semester, as our program continues to grow and expand, we will most likely be able to take in a wider range of skills!
Please still apply! Elite Academy’s accelerated program is top-notch and will help you reach an academic level that is satisfactory. As long as you are passionate about and talented in esports, we can work with your academics to help you graduate!
