STACK Elite 50

We spend months of crunching numbers like wins, losses, championships, school rankings, academic progress and more to provide you, the student-athlete, a ranking of the best schools for academically minded athletes. STACK's Annual Elite 50, provides athletes with a list of schools to discover the one with right balance of academics and athletics for each individual. Our Elite 50 consists of two sections: the overall Elite 50 and summary, and individual team rankings for the 21 varsity sports. If overall athletic domination is more important to you, dive into the Elite 50.
