San Diego Virtual School is Now NCAA Approved
San Diego, CA, March 15, 2016 --(PR.com)-- San Diego Virtual School has recently become NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) approved for the 2015-2016 school term. The NCAA is a non-profit organization that regulates athletes from over 1,200 organizations, individuals, institutions, and more. The NCAA gives students an opportunity to annually compete while enrolled in their coursework. It is the NCAA’s mission to be able to promote athletic competition while continuing to emphasize the importance of education.

Now at San Diego Virtual School, students may begin to enjoy the opportunities to become a part of the NCAA and can be recruited for and to play for D1, D2, and D3 colleges immediately after high school.
