Student-athletes from around the nation contributed to a new NJCAA record as 6,656 participants earned a spot on one of the three NJCAA All-Academic teams. This year’s record eclipsed the previous mark of 6,329 set in the 2017-18 academic year.
“Year in and year out, NJCAA student-athletes continue to set a new standard both on the field and in the classroom,” stated NJCAA President & CEO Dr. Christopher Parker. “The 2018-19 academic year was no different as student-athletes raised the bar once again to reiterate the importance of academics throughout the NJCAA.”

NJCAA All-Academic First Team: 4.00 GPA
NJCAA All-Academic Second Team: 3.80-3.99 GPA
