To get accepted into an American university, you need a high school diploma. Depending on your diploma, grades, and test scores on the SAT and TOEFL, we can find the right university that fits your academic level.
The American college sports system is divided into different divisions. This can vary from Olympic level sports to regional level sports and there is a spot available for nearly every ambitious student-athlete! Universities and coaches are looking for special skills in a student-athlete that are necessary for a successful college career.
