About Graduating Champions

Graduating Champions offers over 15 years of combined athletic and educational consulting experience. We conduct one-on-one academic consultation, along with workshops, lectures and keynote speeches at top universities and conferences throughout the United States.

Our mission is to increase Graduation Success Rates by navigating NCAA intercollegiate student-athletes through all four academic seasons.  We teach the student-athlete how to create their own blueprint of success for their personal, academic and athletic goals.

Our Services

Graduating Champions provides educational consulting and professional development services to students in athletic programs in the K-12 and university levels. Student-athletes participate in workshop and seminar style sessions focused on exploring the Graduating Champions model, which is solidly based on the expanding research from the fields of cognitive psychology and social learning theory. The curriculum facilitates the acceleration of individual achievement by changing habits, attitudes, beliefs and expectations that inhibit and often block high-performance individuals.

Our workshops are uniquely structured to fit the needs of each athletic program and academic institute. Contact us to learn more
