NCAA Approved

AESA Prep Academy is also NCAA Approved. This approval is critical for any student-athlete wishing to attend/play for a college or university in the United States. In order to be eligible to play a sport at the university level, NCAA requires all students to have completed coursework, particularly core credits (Math, English, Science, and Social Studies), that are NCAA approved. If a student athlete is taking/or has taken non-approved NCAA coursework, he or she will not be eligible to play in the NCAA.

DIPLOMA MILLS – are “schools” that appear to be legitimate but are solely aimed at awarding diplomas to students for quick profits. These schools’ diplomas hold no weight, offers sub-par coursework, and thus are not recognized by the NCAA or colleges and universities. Diplomas mills are extremely dangerous and end up costing students and parents valuable time and money. NCAA has been slow to recognize the diploma mill epidemic (due to previous sub-par standards and poor oversight), as many diploma mills have actually earned NCAA approval in the past. This has led to an initiative by the NCAA to increase the difficulty of obtaining NCAA approval and is also currently conducting an audit of all previously NCAA approved educational institutions. Despite having earned NCAA approval years ago, AESA actively sought out an additional review by the NCAA (under the new standards and oversight) and in early 2017 and AESA was approved!
