“The main reason we started to look for an online school is that our son decided to go to Spain where he lives in a residence at a Football Academy. As he has trained every day in the morning and then at 2:30 in the afternoon, it is very difficult for him to find a school could accommodate his football training schedule. Minerva offered him an education at a high level as well as continuance with his football training all of which he hopes he can continue at a professional level.” – Jakub’s Mother
