The "Find Your College Fit" Assessment
Our Find Your College Fit tool will identify colleges where you can thrive academically, athletically, and socially. You receive contact information to facilitate your outreach to coaches and academic leaders in your area(s) of interest along with critical information you can use to communicate why you are a great fit for them! Use our Find Your College Fit assessment to generate mutual interest from coaches and opportunities for athletic scholarships or other college provided funding that schools want to provide to students they expect to excel at their institutions.
