College Placement

Part of the mission of Santa Ana Academy is to maximize opportunity and leverage college choice for students. To inspire early preparation and provide a connection between the efforts of today and the resulting benefits of tomorrow, Academy students are exposed to a preparatory model to explore the options and the paths to achieve admission to the college of their choice.

Cliff Drysdale Tennis teaching professionals and industry experts have extensive experience and key relationships across all divisions of college tennis and help our academy students find the best university for their level of play and academic goals. 

In addition, students of college prep age will have the opportunity to travel to the US each year for the John Newcombe Tennis Ranch College Showcase Weekend.

Newks College Showcase gives players the perfect opportunity to meet college coaches. Exposure between coaches and players can be challenging, and this is the time of year most high school players begin looking into college tennis.


Over the weekend there will be many opportunities to showcase talent and interact with coaches in the following formats:

  • Point, Set and Match Play

  • Team tennis in both singles and doubles

  • Fitness Sessions

  • Live Ball drills

  • Q&A Sessions

  • Three meals on-site
