Eligibility

Academic Eligibility

Student athletes in high school are expected to meet or exceed a 2.0 GPA in order to be eligible to participate in school-sponsored activities. We have established excellence as a standard and strive to maintain an appropriate balance among academics, athletics, and all extra-curricular activities.

Athletes below a 2.0 can practice but will not compete for 5 weeks at the beginning of the following semester. After the probation period is served, the student will complete a progress report documenting a 2.0 for the school Athletic Director. The Athletic Director will review and clear athletes.

If ineligibility is due to hardship, students may submit a Student Academic Appeals Packet.
