Future College Athletes!!!!!!!!!!

Do many high school athletes earn athletics scholarships?

Very few in fact. According to recent statistics, about 2 percent of high school athletes are awarded athletics scholarships to compete in college. This small number means high school student-athletes and their parents need to have realistic expectations about receiving an athletic scholarship to play sports in college. Academic, not athletic, achievement is the most reliable path to success in life.

  • This is why academics are so important! At the high school my daughter attends, the class of 2009 received an average of $28,000 in scholarships; most of the students graduate with more than one full year of college credits.

  • Which is why an alternative sport is good like golf. 80% of all Golf scholarships go unclaimed every year.
