This award is presented annually to both male and female players that are high school seniors. To become a Scholar All-America at the interscholastic level, a player must first be nominated by their head coach. The coach must be a United Soccer Coaches member at the high school level. To be nominated, players must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.75 or better (on a 4.0 scale) through the first semester of their senior year; must have demonstrated recognized excellence in high school soccer and must have performed community service at the local, regional, or national level.

The Scholar All-America Committee examines the resumes of the eligible candidates and then selects the team.
