BASEBALL ACADEMY PROGRAM
Our comprehensive academy program propels players towards an elevated level of performance. Our focus centers on cultivating student-athletes aged 12 to 18 and post-grad athletes, priming them for success in collegiate and professional competitions. We focus on four key areas of development.
Our rigorous year-round training program is proven to help student-athletes reach the next level.
Our intense game schedule includes many top academies and junior colleges in the Southeast, thus giving our players the visibility of scouts from around the nation.
Our students are enrolled in NCAA-accredited academic programs in order to ensure success in the classroom and on the field. We offer in-house support for all of our student athletes.
Mentorship + Discipleship
Rooted in faith, our program focuses on developing players who are mentally able to thrive at the next level.
Under the guidance of Coach Gene Reynolds and Gary Cates, our player development process’s efficacy has been proven repeatedly. Over the past seven years, our efforts have resulted in the drafting of eight players into professional leagues, and more than a hundred athletes have secured scholarships to pursue their college careers.

Academic Overview for U.S. Based Students
Georgia Premier Academy currently offers two options for online schooling. Both options are available for grades 6-12. The two options available are Georgia Virtual School and The Ogburn School.
Students who are registered with The Ogburn School or Georgia Virtual School need to be prepared with an updated laptop.
A facilitator will be available in a classroom setting each day from 8 a.m.-12 p.m. Each student will be required to attend class during these hours. They will be given a short break around 10 a.m. Additional time with the facilitator can be scheduled for the afternoons if a student needs extra assistance. The facilitator will also oversee course progress and send progress reports to parents if requested. The facilitator will also provide progress reports to the coaching staff.
Both online options will fully meet the student’s educational requirements. However, Georgia Virtual School is more structured whereas The Ogburn School allows students to work at their own pace (with guidance from the advisor and facilitator).
The Ogburn School and Georgia Virtual School are stimulating programs that teach students self-discipline and time management. Students need to have a clear understanding that there will be work required of them beyond the normal school hours. Students will be attending online classes from 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Students will also need to study beyond these hours to maintain the workload that comes with some classes.
The enrollment packet for The Ogburn School is listed below. To enroll in Georgia Virtual School courses, email

2020, College of Charleston
Georgia Premier Academy helped change my life and baseball career. Entering into the Academy, we had just begun one of the craziest times my generation had ever seen, the Covid-19 pandemic. All high school baseball recruiting was halted and guys like myself, who did not have the college offers and attention that they would have liked at that moment were in the worst predicament possible. When I decided to attend GPA, I also decided to transition to become a pitcher only. Knowing I was miles behind the eight ball in pitching, I knew that there was a sense of urgency that needed to be present in my daily routine. The coaching staff and mentors who were present at the academy helped me soak in information that was essential for a new pitcher to have at a rapid pace. A pace that was very much needed for me to be where I needed to be at that point in my fresh pitching career. Not only that, but the relationships that I made at the academy I would not trade for the world. Being able to assimilate with guys from all over the world was one of the greatest experiences of my life. GPA is a strong faith-based organization that does not shy away from teaching the gospel. I believe GPA is great for any athlete who is serious about taking their game to the next level with premier exposure, and great competition as well as a friendly, enjoyable environment. If I could go back and change it, I would have decided to attend GPA a lot earlier.
