JCCC Academic Excellence The Johnson County Community College athletic staff knows what to look for in a prospective student-athlete. To be a Cavalier is to have the determination to succeed – not only on the playing field but in the classroom as well. Balancing academic achievement with athletic success is a primary focus of Johnson County Community College athletics. To help achieve that balance, JCCC offers some of the best academic support services in college athletics. The purpose of the academic counseling program is to provide a well-organized and systematic approach to balancing the rigorous demands of academics and athletics at Johnson County.

They also work with each student-athlete individually to help keep academics a priority and on track toward a degree. When it comes to academics, every measure is taken to ensure studentathletes are given the necessary support to reach their potential. “Our student-athletes frequently note that they chose Johnson County not only for its strong athletic traditions but for its outstanding academic reputation,” said JCCC athletic director Carl Heinrich. “They realize the academic challenges that lie ahead, but understand the importance of strong academic preparation for their future careers.” • JCCC’s fastpitch softball team has been honored as National Academic Champions five times (1992, 1994, 2000, 2001, 2004).
