After years of research and discussion, my son will be starting the process this summer as a candidate for the class of 2019. I have not been a part of this research and preparation as this is his journey and I want him to be solely responsible for this process. I do want to understand what role sport recruitment will have in the application. Looking at current results for the track and cross country teams, he would be competitive at his current times Junior year. Should his coaches contact the coaches at the academy regarding his desire to attend? What level of importance is there in the admission process for recruited athletes? Any insight you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
