Elite Academic Academy is proud to announce the immense success of our Elite Esports Club, which is in its inaugural year, with our team taking first place in three different tournaments while competing in the Vanta Leagues. 

“Esports is a truly amazing club with exceptional coaches and teammates,” said William L, an Esports Club member and student. “It provides a great opportunity to connect with other students through competitive gameplay while having fun. Esports has taught me leadership skills and other important life lessons. I love the esports club!”

In the Elite Esports Club’s first year of league play, the team has done an amazing job and claimed first place in Super Smash Bros Ultimates and Madden this fall. The club has students playing competitively in Rocket League, Super Smash Bros., Fortnite, and Madden. Led by Elite Esports Club Advisors Justin Diaz and Sam Keeley, the club has thrived since its inception, creating new opportunities for students interested in competitive gaming, working as a team, and having fun at the same time. 

“I am extremely grateful for the students who have chosen to participate in the inaugural season of Elite Academic Academy’s esports teams,” said Elite Esports Club Advisor Sam Keeley. “I’m beyond proud of what we have accomplished within a few short months and excited to continue to grow the program.  Elite Academic Academy’s esports program will continue to serve as an outlet for our students to grow as people, be part of a team, compete, and lead through a modern medium that speaks to them.”

In addition to the club, Elite Academic Academy has an Esports CTE Pathway. The Esports pathway is designed for students interested in the field of competitive gaming. As part of this curriculum, students will gain insights into the esports industry’s rich history, current trends, and potential future. Students will also explore the diverse roles within esports, from players to casters, managers, and developers. Students will explore esports strategies, team dynamics, and game theory across popular gaming platforms. This pathway provides students with a foundational understanding of the esports landscape and enables them to navigate and thrive in a rapidly evolving domain.
