As the school year begins, many high school fencers and their parents are thinking about their next educational steps. With so many post-secondary options and so few NCAA fencing schools to consider, it’s important that all prospective college level fencers have the information they need to make the best decision possible. That’s why NFCR has used the U.S. Department of Education’s College Scorecard to ensure that student-fencers and their families have the most up-to-date, comprehensive, and reliable information available on NCAA fencing schools.
NFCR’s rankings are restricted to colleges and universities with NCAA-sanctioned fencing teams. Not all college level fencing is conducted at the varsity level. In a future post, the schools that are members of the US Association of Collegiate Fencing Clubs (USACFC) will be ranked using the same criteria.
NFCR’s post allows visitors to sort and filter their search results to easily compare such factors as typical costs, admission rates, test scores, graduation rates and earnings of alumni. With the help of “Colleges with NCAA-Sanctioned Fencing Teams Ranked by Earnings of Alumni & Test Scores” students and families can make informed college choices.
