The Princeton Arts and Sports Academy has announced a joint venture with New Jersey basketball powerhouse The Patrick School to be opened at the Princeton-Windsor Cultural Complex.

The Patrick School Basketball Academy, slated to open in September, “will change the landscape of basketball, sports, art and STEM, not only in the Princeton area, but the state of New Jersey,” said a news release.

The academy will be a fully accredited school and specialized basketball academy for boys and girls, grades 9–12 and post graduates, as it’s marquee flagship program under the Princeton Arts & Sports Academy umbrella, says the release.

A second phase is planned for September 2020, which calls for the opening of the multi-discipline academy at PASA.

A sports institute, which includes basketball, swimming, soccer and tennis; an arts institute, including painting, music and visual arts; and a STEM institute, which includes coding, artificial intelligence, robotics, electronics; and business development. For more information, see pasacademy.org.
