Hargrave Discontinues Postgraduate Football Program

Press Release for April 19, 2013

EmblemHargrave Military Academy will discontinue it’s postgraduate football program at the end of the 2012-2013 Academic year.  The Tiger’s  postgraduate basketball program will not be affected by this change and allows the basketball program to continue its success for years to come.

The landscape for postgraduate athletes and football programs has changed. This includes: college’s desire to have their student-athletes on campus by spring semester; NCAA changes and restrictions on colleges hosting postgraduate football teams on their campuses; and eliminating competition with the college junior varsity teams. 

Hargrave is excited about the future and it’s growth and development emphasizing our core mission of academic, spiritual, and character development of young men in the middle and high school.

Hargrave’s Academic Postgraduate Program, anchored by our long association with the United States Naval Academy Foundation and with the West Point Scholars Program, will continue to provide academic development and experiences to prepare young men for attendance to our nation's service academies.

The future is bright and our enrollment in grades seven through twelve is strong.

For additional questions, concerns or for more specific information about this development, please contact Coach Tim Oditt, Hargrave’s Director of Athletics, at 434-432-2690 or email [email protected].
