Important Information for Students Continuing Athletics Beyond High School
Please refer to the links at the bottom of this page for important information regarding eligibility, standards, transcripts, test scores, and more for the college-bound student athlete.
If you are planning to play athletics in college, start preparing now. There is more to being a college student-athlete than just having talent. When college recruiters visit Buena High School, one of their first questions is "How are the student-athletes grades, can I see their transcript?" Because colleges/universities are evaluated by the number of student-athletes who graduate, recruiters want to make sure that not only can an student-athlete perform athletically but academically as well. Here are some tips to follow to make sure that you have prepared yourself for success:
- Successfully complete the recommended graduation plan/ follow A-G
- Choose courses which will give you the academic foundation to be successful in college.
- Stay up with homework and assignments. All assignments are important. Just as practices prepares you for a game, doing homework and classwork prepare you for tests.
- If you are having trouble in a class, schedule a meeting with your teacher, ask for help during BARK or visit A-Team tutors during BARK. Do not wait until it is too late.
If you are having a hard time finding time to go to supports because of practices, talk to your coaches. No excuses!!
