Center for Excellence
The Center for Excellence (CFE) is an intensive year-round academic and athletic program for students in the first through 12th grades, which meets each weekday during the academic year for three hours after school. The CFE offers students age-appropriate academic programs, mentoring and counseling, along with life skills training, tennis instruction and tennis competition. For older teens, the CFE helps students prepare to take standardized tests, including the SAT. We also provide guidance on the application process for students considering college. On the weekends, from 10:00 am-5:00 pm, the CFE students have access to individual tennis and academic instruction, free court time and mentoring programs. During the summer, the CFE meets five days a week from 9:00 am-3:00 pm. The program has produced stunning results: For 14 consecutive years, 100% of CFE seniors have gained admission to college on academic or athletic scholarships or with financial aid packages. Most of our children had never visited a college campus until they took field trips with WTEF. Our graduates have been admitted to such renowned institutions as Morehouse, Princeton, Vanderbilt, and Williams.
