To be nominated for Academic All-State, a student must be:
- An athlete, student trainer or manager in good standing with the team
- Of good moral character
- A senior
- Have an overall grade point average of 92 or above (including courses from grades 9-11 and courses completed from grade 12). Weighted GPAs accepted.
Nominations must be made by the head coach of the prospective sport and the head coach must be a member by October 15th. The nominating coach must nominate his/her student by the deadline at www.pressboxservices.com (click on “Academic All State Nominations” on right side under login). After the nominations are submitted and the deadline is passed, the nominations are sent to the THSCA for review. While the student might initially meet the criteria for nomination, that does not guarantee the student a spot on a team. When reviewing the nominations, the THSCA considers each students’ GPA, class rank, SAT and/or ACT score. The students receive points based on each criteria. The total number of points they receive determines which team they are placed on. The classification of the school is not a factor, and there’s not a limit on how many players can make a team.
The best team a player can make is the Elite Team. It is a great honor to make the Elite team, as a player must have near perfect scores in all categories. The hierarchy then follows in this order:
