A look at the high school run by the LA Galaxy for elite soccer players

by enrolling players in the team's school, the Galaxy can work with them for nearly nine hours each weekday — training, educating and feeding them — before turning them back to parents each night without worrying about losing them to a school program or one of the many elite youth soccer programs in Southern California.


The Galaxy school's students work independently on laptops, completing up to five lessons a day; they also meet regularly with tutors and academic advisors.

The Galaxy cover all costs, including tuition, computers and meals, for the 50 students.
