Academy Life

Universal Trip

Making it a defining experience.

Smith Stearns aims to provide all of our students with an all around experience and friends and memories that will last a lifetime. In addition to fun on court activities such as college dual match competitions, team bonding, and a weekly stickball game, various off court activities are scheduled throughout the year to enhance our students training and living experience.

Being geographically located on gorgeous Hilton Head Island, outdoor adventures are endless! Students can participate in swimming, kayaking, paddleboarding, fishing, biking, and trips to the beach. They can do all of these activities as well as horseback riding, right here inside the Resort.

On the weekends students may opt to go to the movies, attend a concert or festival, go X-Treme Bowling, play miniature golf, shop at the Outlet Malls, go on a day trip to Savannah, and even see a local theatre production.

Organized group activities are scheduled throughout the year and include bowling competitions, pool parties, dances, and our Annual Smith Stearns Christmas Party. Group trips are also planned and include destinations such as Universal Studios and trips to watch college dual matches and professional tennis.
