Academic Requirements for Participation in Sports
All middle school student-athletes must maintain a minimum of a 2.0 GPA. A semester or cumulative GPA may be used to determine eligibility. Sanctions for not meeting the minimum GPA requirement are as follows:
6th grade Students: Athletes will be informed of the 2.0 minimum GPA requirement in an effort to prepare them for participation in athletics in future years.
7th grade Students: Athletes who meet the minimum MSAC requirements will be able to try out and participate with less than a 2.0 GPA. A 7th grade student-athlete cannot participate in competition until his/her grades have increased above a 2.0 GPA. School administrative staff will conduct a grade check two weeks after the season begins to determine full eligibility for those student-athletes with a GPA below 2.0. If the student-athlete’s grades are not above a 2.0 GPA after the fourth week of the season, he/she will be allowed to practice, but will be ineligible to participate in competition for the remainder of the season.
8th grade Students: Athletes must have a minimum 2.0 GPA to try out and participate in middle school and/or high school athletics.
The academic advisor will notify the parents of a student athlete if his or her grades for the CURRENT marking period fall below the minimum requirement of 2.0 GPA and will develop an appropriate tutoring plan on a case by case basis while the athlete is benched from competition. While student athletes will remain a part of the team, some or all of practice time will be dedicated to tutoring and supporting the student athlete to meet the minimum GPA requirement.
