International Development Academy brings student-athlete dreams to life. We offer multiple academy locations in Europe for both male and female student-athletes. Working with each family, we identify goals, program fit, and financial situation to match our locations with your dream. For student-athletes to succeed in todays competitive landscape, they must be equipped with a well rounded skill set both on and off the field of play. We make sure that happens!



The IDA Valencia Academy, based in downtown Valencia, is an Elite Boys & Girls Soccer Program designed for international student-athletes aged between 15 and 21 who are committed to developing both on the field and in the classroom. 

Our IDA UK Academy is an Elite boys soccer program designed for international student-athletes aged between 15 and 21 who aspire to become a professional footballer or want to play collegiate soccer.

In partnership with Soccer Management Institute (SMI), Rome is the perfect location for:

  1. Student-athletes who want to have a Master's Degree in Sports Management

  2. Student-athletes looking to spend a fantastic gap year in Italy and play soccer at a high level, especially on the women's side.


Our methodology cultivates academic and athletic success through determination and integrity. We’ve found that our student-athletes strive for more both on and off the field of play. As educators, we believe that our role is to help each student-athlete reach their goals by providing an all-encompassing campus environment. 

We support & we challenge. You succeed.
