Our Story

Higher Standards Academy, LLC was founded in 1995 and has been an international education partner for high performance people since that time. The education we provide is based on over 30 years of professional experience and training in various industries. Our focus shifted to Professional Sports in 2007 when international transition demands became greater.

As technology in America has grown, more measurement systems have created higher expectations for athletes. We have seen that in order to help them succeed more quickly, traditional transition models had to be revamped. We developed the V+1 methodology, which includes components of neuroscience, technology, comedy, learning theory, military standards, sociology and engineering to obtain the rapid results required to compete in American athletics and business today.

Any successful transition is all about adjustments. Whether in a classroom, on a field, court or the boardroom, success requires constant “tweaks” to a process.
