Crusaders Among National Leaders in NCAA Graduation Success Rate

For the 10th straight year, Holy Cross athletics teams have posted a graduation success rate that ranks them among the nation’s best Division I colleges and universities.

The NCAA released their annual Graduation Success Rate report in November 2016, and Holy Cross tied for 17th among 351 Division I schools, with a 97 percent graduation success rate for Crusader athletics teams. Only four other New England schools earned a spot in the top 20 alongside Holy Cross: Harvard, Brown, Dartmouth and Yale.

“The entire Holy Cross community takes great pride in the exceptional work our scholar-athletes put into their academic efforts,” says Director of Athletics Nathan Pine. “It is remarkable to once again see Holy Cross recognized among the top 20 nationally by the NCAA for their outstanding work in the classroom.”  ■
