Next One Up’s innovative approach pushes beyond the boundaries of typical programs to make a lasting difference in our students’ lives.

Our goal is to ensure that middle school students find their way to a good high school where they can truly thrive, and that they successfully graduate on a clear path to college or career.  

Our year-round, multi-year services are unparalleled in their depth and breadth; and our highly-personalized services are tailored to meet the individual needs of our student athletes. Next One Up understands that every child and family is unique, and what makes our program successful is its one-on-one nature.
