The BCAA recognizes the importance and value of education. The term “student athlete” recognizes the importance of being a student first, with athletic endeavors second. All student athletes must maintain a minimum of a 2.0 GPA. Students who fall below this standard are ineligible to play.
The BCAA gives special recognition annually to scholar athletes. Each and every year the BCAA conducts two scholar athlete banquets. Seven students from each BCAA school are recognized and provided a keepsake gift. In addition, the BCAA distributes over $100,000 in scholarship dollars to scholar athletes. The names and schools of the scholar athletes are listed on the website for the entire school year. These athletes are role models who demonstrate a commitment to excellence in the classroom and field or court of play.
