CARLOS BELTRAN BASEBALL ACADEMY
Academic Institution Delivering Results for Our Students Athletes
The Carlos Beltran Baseball Academy was a dream that finally came true for Carlos Beltran on August 18, 2011. The Academy is a completely bilingual high school, which seeks athletic and academic excellence. The facilities are located in the Municipality of Florida, Puerto Rico.
We accept and enroll about one hundred students in the first academic year and we have been increasing enrollment over the years. Our baseball academy offers creative and innovative programs within a community that stimulates learning. We offer an education of excellence where academic and sports knowledge are fully integrated in the same curriculum and based on a comprehensive and personalized approach.
We want our students to understand the great importance of obtaining an education and increasing their athletic abilities. It is for this reason that every detail, including the design of the classroom has been attended to maximize student-teacher participation. We have created a complete center that motivates and encourages senior students to work towards academic excellence while pursuing their athletic goals. The academy has the best facilities; a computer center, Wi-Fi technology, among other facilities. With multi-purpose recreational and athletic areas, indoor batting boxes, pitching mounds, lockers, gym, swimming pool, among others. Also, it will have a complete park and a half park in compliance with Major League Baseball standards. All these facilities are of the utmost importance and are necessary elements for proper development. Students also enjoy support from the staff and players of Major League Baseball (MLB) as part of their athletic development. As part of our commitment we work to prepare them to lead productive and responsible lives as whole human beings. To date, the CBBA has graduated 286 student athletes of which 27 have achieved their dream of being selected in the MLB Draft that takes place annually and thus become professional baseball players. More importantly, 98% of our graduates have received a scholarship offer to continue their education at the university level in the United States and Puerto Rico while continuing to play the sport they love. The enrollment of the CBBA for this academic year 2018-2019 was 152 student athletes, the largest group since its opening in 2011 and testimony of our continued effort to develop the best specialized baseball high school in the world.
