At YSC Academy, we have created an individualized college-counseling program with the goal of creating the best possible post-graduation options for each of our student-athletes. We follow a student-centered, student-led approach to the college admission process and expect each of our student-athletes to drive much of what happens with regard to the process. In utilizing this approach, we find our student-athletes are more at ease throughout the process and take time to discuss and select schools that are best suited to their individual interests and needs. Our outstanding success in helping our students get into colleges that fit them athletically, academically and socially is a point of pride at YSC.
All students in grades 9-11 take the PSAT/NMSQT in order to establish a benchmark for their testing and give coaches a window into their potential scores on the SAT and ACT. YSC Academy also provides twice-weekly test prep sessions, led by our faculty, which are built into the school day for 10th and 11th graders. Student-athletes must also register with the NCAA Eligibility Center, which they complete alongside the Director of Academics & College Counseling.
Since an open dialogue is incredibly important, the Director of Academics & College Counseling is available for any and all questions related to the college admissions process on an ongoing basis. If you have any questions about our college process, please contact Dr. Nooha Ahmed-Lee.
