Upper Echelon Academy and World Equestrian Center – Ocala Announce Partnership

Beginning in the 2023-2024 school year, World Equestrian Center – Ocala will offer on-site academic services provided by Upper Echelon Academy (UEA). World Equestrian Center founder and CEO Roby Roberts explains, “UEA’s family-focused values and top academics align with our core values of maintaining a family-friendly environment at World Equestrian Center. We have been in conversation with UEA since breaking ground, and we are thrilled to finally offer UEA’s academic services to our exhibitors.”

UEA’s alignment with WEC expands the network of top academic services for the equestrian community. UEA provides elite college preparatory classes with a flexible schedule to accommodate equestrians’ training demands.

At World Equestrian Center, UEA will offer on-site study rooms, academic advising, and instructional support for all exhibitors. The state-of-the-art UEA facility will provide students with a designated location equipped with Wi-Fi, comfortable study spaces, and snacks so students can take needed time to focus on school.
