While ELHS graduation requirements exceed NCAA student requirements for eligibility…. families that have students that hope to participate in Division 1 or Division 2 athletics still need to be familiar with NCAA eligibility standards. Students and their families should work closely with their counselor to ensure that all the courses that they select have been approved by the NCAA as meeting eligibility standards for prospective student athletes.
Please do not assume that the counselors know that you son/daughter is being looked at by college recruiters. Start these conversations as soon as you know that your child is potentially a Division 1 or Division 2 athletic prospect. Please reference the attached documents to help you become familiar with the NCAA eligibility requirements
