Our boarding program is also one of a kind. In contrast to the dormitory housing at many tennis academies, Smith Stearns provides four single-family homes, each with full-time supervision by resident house parents. We aim to promote a family style atmosphere – a true home away from home. House parents provide transportation, do laundry and cook meals – in addition to providing caring supervision and guidance. The homes are spacious and offer a common living area, dining area, kitchen, laundry space, student bedrooms and bathrooms, and a houseparent suite. Students share bedrooms which they are able to personalize to their taste, and an adjoining bathroom. Each student has their own study space and wireless internet access is available throughout the house. Delicious home cooked meals are provided and each student has the ability to request their favorite foods on a weekly shopping list. Our house parents can accommodate various nutrition requests and food allergies as well.

In addition to the academy fulltime and summer program, we offer a variety of program supplements to help our students. Our tournament coaching program is always of large importance to families as we provide coaching or chaperoned coaching at a variety of tournaments including state, sectional, national, and ITF level. Our top level coaches are available for private lessons so that each student can work on all of the specific areas of their game that need extra attention.

Our sports performance center has been a great addition and provides the opportunity to work with our students on group fitness, group yoga, personal training sessions and informational talks.

Group Fitness is held on Monday and Wednesday afternoons from 5:15-6:15 and Yoga on Thursday afternoons from 4:30-5:30.

The Sports Performance Center is located in the Sea Pines Center off Lighthouse Road.
