Seven teams posted a perfect 1000 in the latest APR cohort.

Led by seven teams that recorded perfect 1000 scores, Fairfield University Athletics added another benchmark to its continued tradition of academic excellence with the release of the latest Academic Progress Rate (APR) from the NCAA. The most recent APR includes multi-year data from the 2018-19 through the 2021-22 academic years.
 
Fairfield shared the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference lead, with six MAAC programs earning a perfect 1000 multi-year APR score: men's and women's cross country, men's golf, men's swimming and diving, women's soccer, and women's tennis. The Stags' seventh 1000 APR score was earned by field hockey, which competes in the Northeast Conference.
 
Five additional Fairfield Athletics programs boasted a multi-year APR score better than 990: women's lacrosse (997), women's swimming and diving (997), softball (996), baseball (995), and men's lacrosse (991).
 
Implemented in 2003 as part of an ambitious academic reform effort in Division I, the APR holds institutions accountable for the academic progress of their student-athletes through a team-based metric that accounts for the eligibility and retention of each student-athlete for each academic term.
