Integrity, Intelligence & Enthusiasm

Noli Irritare Leonem

Leon High School was established in 1871 and has fielded a football team since 1916. The continuously successful football program at Leon is one of the oldest and most highly revered aspects of Leon's historic tradition. This 2015-2016 season we celebrate 100 Years of Lion Football! Let the pride and tradition continue . . .


If a student takes the current SAT before March 2016 and then takes the redesigned SAT at a later date, the NCAA Eligibility Center will not combine section scores from the current and redesigned SAT when determining a student's initial eligibility. The NCAA Eligibility Center will only combine section scores from the same version of the test. Because the redesigned SAT varies in design and measures different academic concepts than the current SAT, a numerical score on the current test may not be equivalent to the same numerical score on the redesigned test.
