Welcome to Above and Beyond the Playground


Above and Beyond The Playground is an enrichment enterprise designed to promote personal growth

and team-building through valuable mentor/student-athlete relationships working together to achieve common goals.You can expect ABP to come alongside each student to equip them for the best possible chance to
succeed and develop in the classroom, in their sport, in the social world outside of family and school,
and in life beyond high school. While coaching students to short-term classroom success, we instill
such priceless life skills as goal setting, time management, poise under pressure, focus stamina,
organizational skills, and growth mindset. We want our impact to stay with your student for years to

Give your student the best chance to succeed in school, sports and in life with help from ABP's
academic and sports coaches by filling out the enclosed Admission Application. You will be notified
of the status of your student's acceptance into the ABP program as soon as all candidate applications
have been processed.


All the Best,
Deonte Tatum
