The New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) recognizes scholar athlete teams and indivuals. To achieve this honor, varsity teams are required that 75% of their roster carry a GPA of 90.00 or higher when averaged together. The students with a 90.00 GPA or above will receive a recognition pin.
NYSPHSAA changed their guidelines as of the 2016-2017 school year. If a team does not meet the scholar-athlete team criteria, individual varsity team members with a 90.00 or above GPA are now recognized as an individual scholar-athlete and receive a recognition pin.
