Dedicated to bringing

student athletes and colleges together. 

About us

Did you know every athlete will go Pro in something other than sports? So if you have the grades, why not attend the best school in the nation? 

No one wants an athlete to waste their time and money on anything that won’t help them get to National Signing Day.


Midwest Athletics Academy aims at improving student athletes and parents knowledge on the recruiting process. Either through our personal recruiting guide book, to hosting a showcase "Midwest Academic Showcase",  East Coast Tour, or supporting college showcase like the "Hillsdale College Honor Roll Showcase".  

What makes Midwest Athletics different? 

  • One of the few that have gone through the recruiting process with our own student athlete. (see below example)

  • We work with Student Athletes with a GPA of 3.0 or higher.

  • Limited number of profiles accepted for each class not hundreds.

  • We provide advice on the recruiting process.

  • Meet colleges that fit your educational goals. 

  • We know the requirements (academically and athletically) of each college.
