ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Twenty-three of Navy's NCAA sponsored varsity sports rank above the national average in the Academic Progress Rate report released Tuesday by the NCAA.

"Our student-athletes strive to set the bar in everything they do" said Naval Academy Director of Athletics Chet Gladchuk. "The support and encouragement they receive through the Commandant and his staff and the academic dean's office and his staff is extraordinary and provides tremendous motivation to be successful across the board. We are all proud to be leaders on the field of competition, but even more so when we can prove to be leaders in the classroom as well."

The Academic Progress Rate is a real-time measure of eligibility and retention of student-athletes competing on every Division I sports team. The APR awards two points each term to student-athletes who meet academic-eligibility standards and who remain with the institution. A team's APR is the total points earned by the team at a given time divided by the total points possible.

The report is based on NCAA Division I Academic Progress Rate dates submitted by the institution for the 2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-12 academic years.
