HISTORY

Xceed’s founders, Drs. Brent Goldman and Richard Goldman, have been two of the top private school leaders in South Florida for several decades. Richard Goldman was the Dean of Graduate Education at Nova Southeastern University (NSU) for 20 years. He and his team were pioneers in the development of distance and internet-based education at NSU. In 1996, Brent and Richard co-founded The Sagemont School in Weston, Florida. Under Brent Goldman’s leadership the school grew to more than 800 students and sent graduates to universities such as Harvard, Princeton, Columbia and Vanderbilt. Additionally, Brent and Richard have co-founded and held leadership positions in a variety of highly successful education ventures, including the University of Miami Online High School, Another Generation Preschools and Smart Horizons Career Online Education, which is McDonald’s official high school.

POST GRAD

Our post grad program is designed for students who need one extra year before they become collegiate student athletes.  While part of this designation is focused on athletic training, we also assist our post grad students with the final academic pieces of their applications.  This involves facilitating additional classes they may be taking, providing test prep to help them meet required SAT/ACT scores and even assistance with the completion of their college applications.  Like the rest of our academy, our post grad program is about whole student instruction not just athletic training.
