Once again Bayside States excellent performance in the APR shows that our coaching and academic staffs are doing an outstanding job with our student-athletes. Academics are a core value of our department, and our student-athletes work hard every day to excel in the classroom. Cheryl Mueller, Bayside State Director of Athletics We expect our student-athletes in all sports to be students first and athletes second. The most recent APR rankings provide evidence that our students strive for the highest possible level of achievement. Congratulations to our student-athletes, our coaches, and faculty for a job well done. Dr. Catherine Asbury, College President We take great pride in how our students perform in the classroom. The time we spend working with them on their academic progress really shows in these rankings. Success in the classroom has always been our top goal each year. When we succeed in the classroom and on the field, we know we have a successful overall program. Peyton Brandt, Gull Head Soccer Coach What a pleasure to work with such a dedicated group of student-athletes. Many of our fans dont understand how many hours these students devote to their studies. Madison Larson, Associate Athletic Director of Academic Services The APR was developed by the NCAA in 2004 to measure and keep track the academic progress and performance for athletic programs at its member institutions. This ensures that all student athletes keep up with their academics and can help those who are falling behind. The APR is determined by using eligibility and retention for each student-athlete on scholarship during a particular academic year. It is calculate by giving each athlete one point for staying in school and one for being academically eligible. The teams total points are then divided by total possible points and multiplied by 1000, which is equivalent to the APR score.
