College Eligibility

Parents and student athletes:

If you are a senior who is planning to participate in Division I or II sports as a college freshman, fall is the time to register to be certified by the NCAA Eligibility Center. Student athletes need to do their part and complete the paperwork required for NCAA eligibility. You must do this in order to qualify for college athletics at the Division I or II level.

The NCAA Eligibility Center is in place to make sure student athletes take a certain amount of “core” courses in high school. Core courses include math, science, social science, English, foreign language, and some elective courses in these areas. It does NOT include courses such as Bible, computer courses, health, physical education, art, music, etc. You can see a list of St. David's School core courses through the NCAA eligibility website.

Student athletes who wish to compete in Div. I or Div. II college athletics need to pay attention to the amount of core courses they will be completing. Also, if you are a student-athlete and wish to compete at a college that belongs to the NAIA, there is a registration process to go through. You must register through the NAIA eligibility website.

St. David's High School Code: 343236

The website links to both of these eligibility centers are listed for your convenience.
