University scholarships are available for those student athletes who have graduated from high school and have passed the mandatory SAT and TOEFL tests. During their university studies, students are able to actively compete in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), or the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).
These colleges provide an excellent opportunity for all student athletes who for many different reasons have graduated from high school, but are still not ready to start their university studies. Student athletes can attend a junior college for two years, and at the same time actively compete in one of three divisions of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA).
If students who have graduated from high school, but were unable to find a college or university to meet their needs, they may choose to attend prep school. These schools help students to, as their name says, prepare for a higher education institute. During their time at prep school, students can also participate in sports activities and competitions, thus exposing themselves to college and university coaches.
If a student athlete, depending on his/her age, decides to complete his high school education in the USA, it will later be much easier for the student to get a scholarship for the college or university of their choice. There are four grades in US high schools, and all students are required to meet certain norms in order to be able to achieve a High School Diploma.
