Students planning to play Division I, II, or III sports in college need to become familiar with the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). The NCAA is the organization responsible for governing the nation’s college and university athletic programs. Students who played sports in high school are familiar with the PIAA, which governs high school athletics in Pennsylvania. The NCAA serves a similar function for all of the colleges and universities in the US.

Visit the Eligibility Center to read about the eligibility requirements. NCAA requires students to take certain "core courses" during their high school career. In addition to core courses, students must meet minimum SAT/ACT scores and have a certain grade point average (GPA). A sliding scale for GPA/ test score requirements can be found on the Eligibility Center website.

Not all courses offered at WASHS are approved as core courses by the NCAA! Be sure that the courses you are taking at WASHS are on the NCAA’s list of approved courses. In order to look up WASHS’ list of courses use the school code, 395105.
