Links and Resources
College Board – Big Future https://bigfuture.collegeboard.org/
Useful tool to help you search for colleges that are a good academic/social fit for you. Note that the portion that allows you to select a sport this site includes club sports, not just varsity programs. We recommend this website to help you find schools that are a good academic fit, not necessarily a good fit athletically.
Adventures in Education https://www.aie.org/
Website geared towards helping families plan for college and how to pay for it! A great resource in looking for scholarships, applying for financial aid as well as managing money and succeeding through and after college.
National Center for Education Statistics https://nces.ed.gov/collegenavigator/
Great for locating colleges that have soccer programs along with specific majors, areas of the country, types and sizes of schools. More accurate than the College Board site for athletic programs but a little less versatile.

Search for a list of NCAA athletic programs by sport, division and/or state.
Search for a list of NAIA athletic programs by sport, state, size, type, etc…
