Sports Participation Continued in College

In recent years, eight NHCS athletes have received and used sport’s scholarship assistance as part of their scholarship package to participate in college sports:  eight in Track & Field, seven in Cross Country.  One played some college basketball as a walk-on.

NOTE:  College scholarships have been plentiful for NHCS students based upon:

  1. Demonstrated diligence in academics
  2. Scoring well on standardized tests,  participation in a wide range of activities such as music, sports, Brain Bowl, etc., and a good community service record

Having portfolios that demonstrate being successful at the state level in sports has been an impressive attention-getter for a number of our athletes.

Participation in Sports Not Fielded by New Hope

Private school athletes may participate for the public school of their attendance district in sports not sponsored by their school.  Most NH athletes take advantage of New Hope’s offerings, but we have had students choose to go outside and do very well in bowling, tennis, soccer, equestrian, softball, & baseball.
