Standards of Excellence

Criteria for remaining in the Academy:

            -85% average per class 
Any student who falls below the 85% will be placed on academic probation.           

Academic probation remains for one marking period and includes close monitoring that involves weekly meetings with the school administrator responsible for supervising the Academy. The student may be asked to remain in school during Academy trips and participate in after-school tutoring sessions for additional assistance.

A student who remains on probation for more than two marking periods will forfeit his/her spot in the Academy.
