Academic Eligibility [Athletic and Non-athletic Extra-curricular Activities]

Weekly Eligibility

To be eligible for interscholastic athletic competition or extra-curricular activity participation, a student must pursue a full-time curriculum as defined and approved by the Principal. Where required, this curriculum or its equivalent must be approved by, and conform to, the regulations of the State Board of Education and the Pennsylvania School Code, as well as any local policies established by the local school board. Students cannot be failing more than one subject. Eligibility shall be cumulative from the beginning of a grading period and shall be reported on a weekly basis. In cases where a student’s cumulative work from the beginning of the grading period does not, as of any Friday, meet the standards previously stated in this section, he/she shall be ineligible from the immediately following Sunday through the following Saturday.

Quarterly Eligibility

In order to be eligible for interscholastic athletics, and/or extra-curricular activities, a student cannot have failed more than one subject during the previous grading period. Failure of more than one subject will result in the student being ineligible for fifteen (15) consecutive school days of the next grading period, beginning on the first day after grades are due. Ineligibility applies to all games, scrimmages, or performances (but not practices).
