Charlotte Saltz, a 9th grade student in Springs’ Venture Online program, is an up-and-coming tennis star. She trains 20 hours a week, and has begun competing in tournaments again as pandemic restrictions ease. Most recently, she took first in a Newport Beach tournament, and is ranked #67 in the Southern California Tennis Association Junior Girls 14 and under.
Charly’s teacher, Wendy Bucaro, describes her as “a well-rounded student and athlete, admired by her classmates and loved by her teachers.”
She chose Venture because of its strong academics and because it gives her the flexibility to train. She plans to go on to college—ideally, Pepperdine University on a tennis scholarship—and go on to teach elementary school.
