Mission Statement

Islands Best Prep Academy provides educational and athletic opportunities for the development of inner-city, underserved elite student athletes. Our approach is simple; we emphasize personal, mental and physical growth and development to be the best of the best, on the field, in the community and in the classroom. With the help of donors, families and the local community, we expose a different kind of team mentality to our students. Whether our students are on the same club team or not, we are one team on campus. These kinds of opportunities would not otherwise be available to this demographic. Our work with the student body is unique; passion, persistence and positivity are instilled throughout daily activities. Whether practicing Mindful Training, working in one of the Goal Groups or hosting a speaker for our Career Building lectures, our focus is on servicing these kids with what would generally be unavailable to them due to their socioeconomic backgrounds and geography.


Islands Best Foundation was born out of necessity. The need to facilitate educational goals while focusing on individualized training for the students’ sport of interest was not readily available to the inner-city youth located in the Wilmington area of Los Angeles, California. Under the educational guidance of Tasha Skipps, our Campus President and Erica Mahan, our Vice President of Academic Operations, our Islands Best Prep Academy was created as a branch of Islands Best Foundation in 2019.
