Exciting news for Gould’s Boys’ Basketball Team: In the year to come, the team will join the NEPSAC AA program, providing players with exposure to NCAA Division I, II, and III college programs throughout the country through regular season play and showcase events!
At Gould, hard work happens on and off of the court and is possible through Gould’s blended learning environment–a mix of in-classroom and online work, and dedicated faculty and advisors who understand and encourage students to pursue their passions. Through blended learning, student-athletes balance their academics and athletics, and in turn become better students and athletes.
It’s this winning combination that has allowed student-athletes playing for Coach McClure to go onto Division 1 schools.
