IJGA is uniquely committed amongst junior golf academies to providing a “great” experience to students, with all actions by staff to be “defined by excellence”.
Above all else, IJGA is committed to rewarding the trust placed in it and is committed to providing a safe environment:
We at IJGA recognize the enormous trust placed in us by parents, who send us their children during some of the most formative and important years in their childhood, with the expectation that they will excel in golf and academics, and even more importantly, develop in character. Therefore, we cannot be satisfied with good, but must offer a great environment and great team of committed and caring staff, including golf coaches, house parents, academic support, college placement.
Although easy to take for granted, not all junior golf academies have the same commitment to safety that we have. Which starts with our gated community campus, then the security around our houses, with alarms on doors / windows and cameras. House parents monitoring the houses every hour of the day and a security guard on duty in the evenings. Safety also extends to our control of students when off campus at activities, where we practice as best possible the concept of “eyes on students” at all times. Our Student Handbook rules are also clear in not permitting drugs, nicotine, alcohol, sexual relations, harassment and bullying, all of which we have no tolerance for. Finally, safety is also found in precautions against Covid, regular housekeeping to keep houses hygienic, and centralized professional catering for the meals we provide. Of course, we cannot guarantee absolute safety, but it is our highest priority.
