Academics play a central role in the life of the students at Legacy the School of Sport Sciences.
In the broadest sense, Legacy’s comprehensive (athletic profession) education program of study engages students in athletics on multiple levels of experiences. Students engage in the professions of athletics on creative, integrated athletic education, exploratory, and advocacy experience levels, in addition to participating competitively.
As a reminder…
Automatic Admission to Texas Public Universities: The top 10 percent of students in Texas are eligible for automatic admission to any public university in Texas under state admissions policies. Under House Bill 588 passed by the 75th Legislature in 1997, students who are in the top 10 percent of their graduating classes are eligible for automatic admission to any public university in Texas.
However, SB 175 caps the number of students admitted under the top 10 percent law to 75 percent at UT Austin; thus, acceptance rates will vary. The University will determine the acceptance rate. In accordance with Title 19 Texas Administrative Code (TAC), §5.5(e), high school rank for students seeking automatic admission to a general academic teaching institution on the basis of class rank is determined and reported as follows:
Class rank shall be based on the end of the 11th grade, middle of the 12th grade, or at high school graduation, whichever is most recent at the application deadline.
The top 10 percent of a high school class shall not contain more than 10 percent of the total class size.
The student’s rank shall be reported by the applicant’s high school or school district as a specific number out of a specific number total class size.
Class rank shall be determined by the school or school district from which the student graduated or is expected to graduate.
