The primary mission of the Guidance Department of Conwell-Egan Catholic High School is to facilitate the maximum development of each student. The services offered are concerned with identity, maturity, problem-solving, conflict resolution, decision making, academic excellence, and college and career choices.
Students must register in their junior year with the Eligibility Center in order to begin the amateurism-certification process. Students must request that SAT/ACT scores be sent to the NCAA from CollegeBoard or ACT. Transcripts must be requested from the Guidance Office. Students in all grades who hope to play Division I, II or even III athletics in college should be familiar with the academic requirements and procedures of the NCAA that are available on this site. A great academic record, excellent SAT scores, and stellar athletic ability are the marks of an exemplary college athlete. It is your responsibility to determine eligibility for your Division/Sport.

How is the NCAA Core GPA Calculated?
The NCAA Eligibility Center calculates the grade-point average of a student's core courses on a 4.000 scale. (A=4; B=3; C=2; D=1)
To determine points earned for each course, multiply the numeric grade value (4, 3, 2 or 1) by the amount of credit earned. A semester is awarded .5 unit of credit and a trimester is awarded .34 unit of credit.
The NCAA Eligibility Center does not use plus or minus grades when calculating core- course GPA. For example, grades of B+, B and B- will all be worth 3 quality points each.
An A grade (4 points) for a trimester course (0.34 units): 4 points x 0.34 units=1.36 total quality points.
An A grade (4 points) for a semester course (0.50 units): 4 points x 0.50 units=2.00 total quality points.
An A grade (4 points) for a full-year course (1.00 units): 4 points x 1.00 units=4.00 quality points.
To calculate the estimated core-course grade-point average, divide the total number of points for all core courses by the total number of core-course units completed.
