To be eligible for participation in school athletics, a student’s grade point average must be a “C” average (70 percent) or higher with no “F,” no unexcused/incomplete work, and no below average marks in conduct. The core subjects used to determine the GPA are Religion and Memory, Reading, English, Spelling, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
To be eligible for participation in school athletics the student is required:
- To have a current physical form on file (CLICK HERE for the Form), and
- To meet the academic requirements as stated above.
If the student does not meet the requirements listed above, he/she will be released from team participation. It is our aim to provide these extra-curricular activities for our students and to provide an opportunity for Christian witness during athletic competition; however, these activities cannot interfere with a child’s academic efforts.
