    My CP has been accepted there, and offered a pretty hefty scholarship (plus a chance to compete for more). She plans to try out as a mascot wherever she goes, and a team that competes NCA or UCA would be a plus. I think she mostly wants a cheer "culture" if that makes any sense, even if her knees won't let her actually do any significant tumbling anymore.

    Did a quick google search for you. Seems to be a good school, lots of accolades for academics. Didn’t look at cheer stuff, but ACT score is not too high for admissions, has quite a few major options & is fairly cheap! Good luck to you & CP!

    I don't think they attend NCA or UCA, I haven't seen them in their Division (DII Small Coed), but I could be wrong. Their facebook says they're a competitive team tho, but their instagram only seems to post basketball games

    Alabama state schools are worth looking at for merit aid if you've got good test scores. They have a low minimum (which I suspect is a function of the state legislature), but also tend to have good honors colleges and give good merit aid. CP prefers smaller campuses, and she wants to do research, which the smaller, honors college schools often are good for. And, she'd really like to be involved in cheer in some way, which seems more likely at a smaller school.

    She's also applied to University of Alabama at Huntsville, and actually met with their cheer coach last Feb, but UAH doesn't do football at all (they are the ONE state school in Alabama that doesn't), and cancelled all sports this year, including releasing their D1 Hockey team (the one sport where they are D1, and their cheerleaders largely cheer for Hockey), so they may or may not have cheer anymore. According to the coach, they have done NCA (intermediate), but they also sometimes have competed as an open team at closer competitions.

    Ms Donna,

    If you have questions about specific schools, let me know and I’ll see what I can find out for you. I know most of the cheer coaches or at least know someone that knows the coaches. I’ll do what I can.
