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.
Students must complete the following steps to participate in Division 1 or Division 2 athletics.
- Register for eligibility at www.eligibilitycenter.org and complete the amateurism questionnaire during sophomore year or at the beginning of junior year.
- Register to take the SAT and/or ACT. Use Eligibility Center code “9999” as a score recipient
- Double check to make sure that you are taking courses that match the approved core courses
- Request that your school counselor send an official transcript to the Eligibility Center after completion of your junior year.
- At the beginning of senior year, check with your school counselor and the Eligibility Center to determine the amount of core courses that need to be completed your senior year.
- Take the SAT and/or ACT again. The Eligibility Center will use the best scores from each section of the ACT or SAT to determine your best cumulative score.
- Continue to take college prep core courses.
- Check to make sure that you are taking courses that match the approved core courses.
- Review your amateurism questionnaire responses and request final amateurism certification beginning April 1 (for fall enrollees) or October 1 (for spring enrollees).
- Continue to earn the best grades possible.
- Graduate on time (in 8 academic semesters). After graduation, ask your school counselor to send your final transcript with proof of graduation.
