The International Junior Golf Academy (IJGA) is the premier destination for middle and high school golfers seeking a competitive advantage over their peers. IJGA’s unique programs deliver customized golf training, tour competition, performance training, character building and an elite college preparatory education in a close, family environment in Hilton Head, South Carolina.
At IJGA, we believe in developing the whole person—the athlete, the student and the young adult. IJGA students are fascinating young adults whose passions extend well beyond the golf course; they are simply some of the brightest, most committed and consistent athletes in the world.
At IJGA, we emphasize both intensive training and scholastic achievement through the nationally accredited Heritage Academy and, as a result, nearly all of our students receive college scholarships to the top collegiate golf programs in the United States. Highly sought after, the diverse student body represents 28 countries as athletes and scholars.
