Attention High School Athletes Interested in Participating in NCAA Sports:
New rules will be implemented by the NCAA for student-athletes planning to participate in Division I or Division II athletics at the college level. The NCAA determines a college student-athlete's eligibility. It is the student's and the parent's/guardian's responsibility to check with the National College Athletic Association (NCAA) and their post-secondary institution before completing or adjusting the student's schedule. The NCAA currently only accepts college preparatory classes and above. If a student-athlete wishes to participate in collegiate sports, the student and parent are advised to meet with the school counselor.
