Importance of NCAA Recognition for An Online School

The recognition by the National Collegiate Athletic Association is a pivotal validation for American High School and the online education space as a whole as enrollment numbers continue to rise year-over-year. Current statistics reveal students are flocking to this alternative education platform that is flexible, adaptable, and ultimately facilitates their long-term scholastic and athletic objectives.


According to the NCAA, there are nearly eight million students currently participating in high school athletics in the United States, with more than 460,000 competing as NCAA athletes. The facts show the likelihood of an NCAA athlete earning a college degree is significantly greater, and AHS was determined to earn this certification to empower and enable student-athletes to avoid any interruption in their studies while they pursue their dreams.
