SAT Prep Course
Student-athletes are required to take an SAT Prep Course while enrolled in or program. The course will be built into their daily schedule. We offer experienced SAT Prep tutors who come to our facility for an hour each day to tutor our student-athletes in the English and Math subjects.
For those who need to, we encourage them to take their re-take their SAT's and raise their score in order improve their academic profile and ensure that they are NCAA qualified to play at the college level.
The SAT Prep Course is included in your tuition and comes at no exta cost.
For those who want to get a head start on their college education, we give our student-athletes the ability to take online college courses. Student-athletes can choose what online school they want to attend. Some of our athletes in past have taken online course at online college courses at Camden County College or Rowan at Gloucester County.
We recommend to each of our student-athletes that they should not take more than two classes. If they take more than two, they could possibly be considered a full-time student. If so, their full-time status will take away a year of their NCAA Eligibility.
