ATLAPA Foundation Dedicated to the improvement of academic performance via an integrated athletics focus.

The ATLAPA Foundation is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) Public Charity that strives to improve academic performance for children of all ages, via a unique program integrating educational achievement with athletic performance and the establishment of practical life skills with social/emotional enrichment.
Our vision is to increase the percentage of student-athlete acceptances in post-secondary institutions primarily for having strong academic performance while also having high quality, desirable athletic ability. In addition our students will learn and understand the “business of college education” in order to improve the probability of sustained success while they pursue and complete post-secondary programs of study (athletic, academic or both).
