National STUDENT-Athlete Day (NSAD), observed annually on April 6, provides an opportunity to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of student-athletes.

National STUDENT-Athlete Day was created by National Consortium for Academics and Sports (NCAS) to honor high school and college student-athletes who have excelled in academics and athletics and who have contributed to their communities and schools in a significant way.

The program seeks to encourage families, schools and communities to support their STUDENT-athletes in their endeavors.
