Blended learning courses will help prepare college-bound athletes

(CHANDLER, Ariz.) Oct. 14, 2014 – Odysseyware Academy, a nationally accredited distance-learning school that provides individualized 3-12 instruction, is proud to announce course approval by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).

All of Odysseyware Academy’s courses are provided by Odysseyware, one of the top online curriculums for K-12 education. NCAA-approved courses are available in English, science and math.

“We are thrilled that our courses have exceeded the high expectations of the NCAA,” said Beth TeGrotenhuis, the president of Odysseyware and CEO of its parent company, Glynlyon. “We are confident our courses will help more college-bound athletes develop the skills they need to succeed after high school graduation.”

The NCAA’s Eligibility Center determines every college-bound student athlete’s eligibility to practice, play and earn athletic scholarships in NCAA Divisions I and II. In order to qualify, students must meet specific academic benchmarks throughout their high school career.

Since the NCAA reviews students as early as their freshman year, beginning high school with a plan to take all the required courses is extremely important for any athletes who dream of playing in college.
