School

Our mission is to direct and help all of our student-athletes to fulfill their tennis and academic goals with reverence, enthusiasm, and constant dedication.


Even though DTC is based in Portugal, most of our players will spend a lot of time travelling and one of the biggest challenges they could face is how to “do school” while being abroad. Our program makes that possible, because our curriculum is available wherever internet is accessible, school will travel with our players! Is there a time of the day more ideal for learning than other? Players can also adapt their own daily learning schedule to their tennis program to be the most productive also off court. DTC School also has an open enrollment policy, meaning that players can enroll at any time during the year.


DTC School offers a variety of the best international homeschool programs. These complete and comprehensive programs are complemented by high school electives and world languages.


The mastery-based online curriculum is engaging and interactive, using instant feedback to keep students motivated. The result? Students build confidence and independence.

Over 40,000 eucalyptus, oak, pine, magnolia, palm, and other exotic trees and plants have been planted on this gently undulating Par 72, 18 hole course that measures 5,573 meters from the Men's Tees and 5,173 from the Women's Tees. Water comes into play on many of the holes as they meander between the various lakes and streams that border the Fairways. 


The course is complemented by excellent practice facilities and qualified teachers.
