2012-13 Team Academic Awards Announced for College and High School Programs
The NSCAA annually recognizes college and high school soccer programs that have excelled in the classroom, in addition to their work on the field.
A total of 863 college soccer teams (270 men, 593 women) posted a team grade point average of 3.0 or higher, thereby earning the NSCAA Team Academic Award for the 2012-13 academic year.
Of that total, 184 schools had both their men's and women's programs recognized.
A total of 370 high school soccer teams (140 boys, 230 girls) from throughout the United States have earned the NSCAA Team Academic Award for exemplary performance in the classroom as a team during the 2012-13 academic year. Among these programs are 47 schools receiving honors for both their boys and girls teams.
To qualify for the award, the team must have a minimum grade point average of 3.25 for the entire academic year. The team GPA is determined by adding every player's GPA, then dividing by the number of players.
