Student's Academic Eligibility is determined by the guidelines below as set forth by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association. Specifications are provided below:
All students must also meet local promotion standards, set by the LEA and/or the local school. A minimum load is defined as five courses in the traditional school schedule and three courses for schools on the “block” format. If the school is on an A/B form of block scheduling, a student must pass six of eight courses during what would traditionally be defined as a semester. Any student, including seniors, must pass that minimum load, even if they need fewer for graduation.
BLOCK: pass three courses (minimum load, 90-minute classes)
A/B: pass six courses
