*ATTENTION PARENTS OF STUDENT ATHLETES!!!
There have been some major changes regarding NCAA Eligibility. As of the 2006/2007 school year students who are planning on attending a four year College or University and plan on playing a Division I, II, or III sport must be taking COLLEGE PREP LEVEL courses. Career Prep Level course will NOT be acceptable for NCAA purposes and cannot be used to fulfill NCAA initial-eligibility requirements. In short, you must be taking ALL COLLEGE PREP courses. Note that all Career Prep courses taken prior to the 2006/2007 school year will count towards your students eligibility. If you have any questions regarding this, please contact your coach or the High School Counseling Office.  For more information visit the NCAA website at: www.ncaa.org
