EMPOWERING SCHOOLS & ATHLETES

We Level the Playing Field So That Every Student-Athlete Has a Fair and Equitable Opportunity to Attend College

Honest Game is a public benefit corporation that empowers schools and student-athletes with a plan that provides guidance on the classes, grades, and test scores they need to meet NCAA academic eligibility status. Honest Game co-founders Kim Michelson and Joyce Anderson are on a mission to ensure students and families have equitable access to a college education.

For Joyce, a former high school counselor, attorney and NCAA Division I college athlete, and Kim, the first female to play high school Varsity basketball and baseball pre-Title IX, they experienced firsthand the incredible role sports could play to inspire learning in the classroom.

After working with thousands of high school students and student-athletes, they founded Honest Game to empower students and families with individualized and accessible guidance to their best college fit.

Today Honest Game helps more than 200,000 users meet their college sports goals. We partner with hundreds of schools and organizations to support families across the country by leveraging their students’ passion for sports to fuel their motivation for learning using short-term goals and clear individualized visual guidance.
