Prolific Prep is a little different than most academies in that they require a 3.7 GPA to participate and as stated above, the attend local high schools in the Napa Valley. I believe I posted this article a long time ago.
LU soccer has a number of players from the soccrr academies. Agree,it likely hurts the HS programs but , the system does send us frosh who can play immediately and very well.
Have no reservations about Prolific system. Unlike,as 137 noted,the diploma mill sham preps that have popped up over the last 10-15 yrs,the kids at Prolific attend the local HSs for academics. It remains to be seen how well this program prepares kids both academically and athletically.KL does seem to be progressing quite well so far.
