HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT-ATHLETES QUALIFY ACADEMICALLY TO COMPETE ATHLETICALLY
Athletic talent without academic achievement often results in a dead end to college. High school student-athletes miss out on opportunities to compete in college on scholarship at an alarming rate.
To play sports in college, student-athletes must meet a set of academic qualifications beyond high school graduation requirements and college admission standards.
Navigating the maze of academic eligibility requirements is a nightmare. While every high school must do it, it gets done poorly if at all.

Additionally, college coaches can access verified grades, transcripts, and test scores in real time to help facilitate the recruiting process.
