Are YOU Academically Eligible?

Academic Eligibility

An eligible student must be enrolled full time and making satisfactory progress toward graduation.

Rationale

Academic standards help ensure a balance between activities and academic performance, promote the objective of graduation from high school, ensure that student participants are truly representing the academic mission of the institution, and allow the use of interscholastic participation as a motivator for academic excellence.

Satisfactory Progress Toward Graduation

To be scholastically eligible, a student must also be making satisfactory progress towards the school's graduation requirements, earning a minimum of the quantity of credits indicated on the chart below for the specified year.

Full Time Enrollment

A full time student is one who is enrolled in high school, attending regularly, and passing in subjects offered by a high school, college, work experiences, or other school-approved educational activities equivalent to at least the quantity listed on the appropriate line of the chart below. In addition, a full time student shall have passed subjects equivalent to at least the quantity listed on the appropriate line of the chart below during the immediate preceding transcript grading period.
