Welcome to Firat Education
Firat Education is honored to support the Houston Dynamo FC Academy Pre-Professional student soccer players for the 2021-2022 academic school year. The mission of the partnership between the Houston Dynamo FC Academy and Firat Education is to build upon the culture of soccer development with the culture of academic development.
The vision of the future is to provide student players at the Houston Dynamo FC Academy an academic + soccer experience found nowhere else in the MLS by having in-house, top-notch curriculum and experienced faculty who will hold student players to unparalleled academic standards.
Firat Education’s partnership consists of open labs, player check-ins, monthly workshops and semesterly assessments to measure progress and identify needs.
Firat Education will be providing the high school pre-pro players three tests throughout the school year. The student’s grade level will determine which test will be used. The assessment will help us:
- Identify weaknesses in academic content for the Firat Education/Dynamo Academy open labs.
- Identify weaknesses and communicate these to parents and players to seek additional support from their online programs.
- Measure progress and success of the students.
- Provide practice for upcoming standardized testing for college admissions
Ibrahim Firat, Chief Educational Consultant of Firat Education, Co-Founder of Nexus Futbol Academy, a soccer school in Houston, and a soccer dad and fan will be leading the partnership with the Houston Dynamo FC Academy.
He will be overseeing the academic plans and progress of the pre-professional students, assigning teachers for open labs as they align with the needs of the students, and personally conducting workshops for the students to prepare them for college and the future.
