Americans Sam Querrey, Amer Delic and Jim Thomas used a break of play at the Tennis Channel Open to visit the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy in Las Vegas on Thursday.

The players took a tour of the campus and interacted with the students of the model charter school, founded in 2001 with funds raised through the Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation.

"It was great," said Querrey, who along with Delic will be playing in the Tennis Channel Open quarterfinals Friday. "All the facilities were awesome, the teachers and students were really nice. I wouldn’t mind going to a place like that!

"Everything is state of the art and top of the line and it looks like Andre has done a great job with the whole Academy."

The Andre Agassi College Prepatory Academy (AACPA) was established with the goal of offering academic programs designed to enhance a child's character, respect, motivation and self-discipline.

Located in the heart of Las Vegas' most at-risk neighborhood, AACPA was created specifically to improve skill levels and combat lowered academic expectations while creating a climate of hope among this community's most challenged children. Advanced technology, smaller class sizes and extended school hours are just some of the practices the AACPA utilizes to achieve a higher standard of education.

It creates an environment that rewards students for positive behavior and disciplines unacceptable conduct. Teachers, parents and students each follow a Commitment to Excellence and a Code of Respect. Community leaders, educators and parents work together to establish high expectations for all students.
