The process is simple.
- An initial consultation is scheduled with our College Placement Coordinator to get the ball rolling
- The student enrolls in the program
- Our College Placement Coordinator will then send the student a Personal Information Questionnaire that starts the process of evaluating the player
- Information from that Questionnaire is reviewed and an Action Plan is developed
- Then the Coordinator sets a time schedule for routinely scheduled meetings
- The student, in consultation with the College Placement Coordinator, is given assignments and deadlines by which to complete the assignments
- A list of suitable Colleges is formed
- College Placement Coordinator contacts selected schools and arranges visits and interviews
- School list is condensed
- Final selection is made
- Applications are submitted
- Acceptances are announced
- The principals have been sending players to top Colleges for over 30 years
- Our athletes have earned millions of dollars in athletic scholarship
