In efforts to maintain the integrity and standard of excellence for which Evert Tennis Academy is renowned, we must dutifully enforce all rules and regulations consistently, without bias or exemption.

Discipline System
Each student receives an Evert Tennis Academy Student & Parent Handbook upon enrollment in a full-time program.  The rules and regulations outlined in the handbook are intended to ensure the highest level of respectful and disciplined behavior.  The rules are not difficult to follow nor overbearing in their intent.  They are designed to uphold the level of integrity for which Evert is known.  The terms set forth maintain a level of conduct which supports mutual respect between students and staff, while allowing all Evert Tennis Academy students to exercise their full range of positive personal strengths and talents.

Student Drug and Alcohol Testing Policy
Purpose: Evert Tennis Academy is committed to the highest level of competitive and academic excellence.  Evert believes that the use of illegal drugs or alcohol is inconsistent with this goal.  The use of illegal drugs or alcohol has a detrimental impact on student behavior, interferes with academic and athletic performance, and in addition may cause permanent physical and mental harm to the user.  The use of illegal drugs or alcohol impairs judgment, slows reaction time and reflexes, and decreases the ability to adequately perceive pain.  Lastly, the use of illegal drugs or alcohol by students increases the risk of injury to their teammates, their athletic opponents and others with whom they participate in athletic or other events and activities. (See registration forms for complete policy and actions).

Dear Parents and Students, out of concern for the health and welfare of all our students, Evert Tennis Academy requires every student be covered by a comprehensive injury and sickness plan, one that meets the high cost of medical services and is accepted by local providers and practitioners. 

Although many students are covered by private insurance, there are a few who lose coverage or are insured under an international or out-of-area managed care plan that may not provide coverage for your child when away from home. It is your responsibility to contact your insurance company to discuss what benefits will be lost and what deductibles and co-payments will be required when your child leaves home. 

All boarding students are required to provide proof of adequate health insurance and complete the waiver form included in your admissions packet.
