Horned Frogs Academy
Horned Frogs Academy is an innovative program at Texas Christian University which provides incoming freshman student-athletes with the tools and resources to jumpstart their first year on campus. Bridging the gap between high school and college is not an easy task for some student-athletes. Without the right start, these student-athletes may not embrace the imminent opportunities afforded to them at TCU.
Unique in its design, the Horned Frogs Academy helps shift the freshman paradigm. As a creative, intense, and educational program, the Horned Frog Academy challenges student-athletes to become ethical leaders and responsible citizens in the global community. Taking place during the first two summer session at TCU, participants receive the full TCU experience while getting a head start on life as a Horned Frog.
Six Credits toward Graduation: Student-athletes are enrolled in 6 credit hours of degree applicable coursework. Student-athletes are given the opportunity to successfully transition from high school to a university setting in a closed, structured, and supervised environment. These courses are designed to build academic skills and help student-athletes utilize the resources on TCU's campus.
Kickoff Event: The program kicks off with a Welcome Event in the Moncreif Club where we offer lunch and a welcome from the TCU community. Participants are introduced to university resources and faculty/staff that acquaint new student-athletes with our institutional expectations and core values.
University Orientation: Student-athletes attend orientation with their freshman cohort in conjunction with the Horned Frogs Academy programming. They complete a first semester course schedule in a chosen area of study. Moreover, student-athletes begin to embrace TCU traditions and the spirit of the Horned Frogs Community.
Group Activities: Horned Frogs Academy focuses on holistic development; we are able to offer unique learning experiences. These experiences may include, but are not limited to leadership development, financial literacy, personal development, and community engagement activities.
Residential Experience: As part of the enriched learning experience, Horned Frogs Academy student-athletes live with the other student-athletes and TCU students in a selected residence hall. The buildings are conveniently located near the academic, recreational, athletic, and dining facilities.
