Last year, approximately 3,000 students participated in the Noble League, the competition mechanism of the network’s athletics, fitness, academics, and the arts. We have more than 150 head coaches and facilitate over 1,500 athletic contests annually.
We saw that participation in the Noble League was linked to positive student performance across a range of outcomes:
On average, Noble League participants have higher current and cumulative GPAs, fewer absences, and fewer disciplinary infractions than students who don’t participate.
A 2016-18 study also indicated that Noble League participants had higher projected college graduation rates and higher college retention rates than non-participants.
