Esports

Esports (electronic sports) requires a tremendous amount of critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity from players to achieve and sustain success. Unlock students’ potential with interscholastic Esports by engaging them in this competitive platform that many students are playing independently. Esports is a very fast growing activity that can open multiple pathways to potential careers in this field.

We have an affiliate partnership with The North America Scholastic Esports Federation (NASEF), High School Esports League (HSEL), in addition to our partnership with PlayVS.

We are proud to be launching Esports curriculum to all participating esports districts. You will receive personal connections with the instructional team on an introduction to esports curriculum and how it can be embedded.
