What It Means
The number one thing preventing students from playing sports in college is… academics. Due to a lack of information, too many students do not understand the importance of academics in the athletic recruiting process, let alone how a simple formula like the Academic Index can define them.
Here at Cardinal Education, our goal is to demystify an opaque and complex process – from the academic timeline to the common issues that student-athletes face and more – educating families on what it takes to play not just at the next level, but leverage academics to get into a better school.
We want to help students understand where they stand academically and where they need to be as early as possible. To find out your student’s Academic Index and what it means, please click below.
