Meridian Academy Partners with Coach Ron Oliver to Empower Student-Athletes

At Meridian, we recognize that some students are as committed to their athletic pursuits as they are to their academic achievements. And that traditional high schools limit their ability to train and compete on a national level. 

We are thrilled to announce a new partnership aimed at significantly enriching the academic and athletic opportunities for student-athletes and their families. Joining us is Coach Ron Oliver, a distinguished figure in basketball with over 25 years of coaching experience at both the college and professional levels. Coach Oliver’s impressive career includes roles as an assistant coach for the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers, Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers, and Toronto Raptors. His extensive experience and unique insights are invaluable in mentoring high school student-athletes on their paths to college and professional success.

Before his tenure with these NBA teams, Coach Oliver demonstrated his commitment to athlete development at the collegiate level. At Florida Atlantic University, he started as the Director of Basketball Operations before moving up to an assistant coach role, where he was instrumental in team strategy and player development. His proven track record includes a successful stint at Ball State University, leading to a notable season record that speaks volumes of his ability to inspire teams to greatness.

Coach Oliver loves seeing students thrive on and off the court. He is excited to connect student-athletes with a high school that will allow them to compete, and to provide mentorship along the way.

We are eager to see the heights our student-athletes will reach with Coach Oliver’s guidance. Welcome to the family, Coach Oliver. Together, we’re set to redefine what’s possible for student-athletes at Meridian Academy and beyond.
