Eligibility for Interscholastic Athletics & Activities

Various intramural sporting and fitness op­portunities are available for student par­tici­pation. Interscholastic athletes are not al­lowed to participate in intramural activi­ties. Please note that before beginning his partic­ipation in a particular interscholastic sport, a student must provide proof on a Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association form that he has had a physical examination in the six weeks prior to the starting date of the sport.

In order to be eligi­ble for an inter­scholastic activity or sport, a student must pass six full-credit subjects each week dur­ing a grading period. Failure to meet these standards means that a student may be inel­igible to participate in an ex­tracurricular activity. Each student is reviewed for eli­gibility regularly. A student at each marking period must pass all full-credit courses and have a Grade Point Average of 2.0. Failure to achieve these criteria means that a student will lose his eligibility for a period of time determined by the Principal, in consultation with guidance counselors and the Athletic Director.

If a student is absent from school, he may not participate in any school-related activity that day, even as a spectator, without being considered tru­ant. To participate in an activity, a student must be in school by 10:00 a.m. the day of the activity. Excused absences may be exceptions.

Supervision of Athletics & Activities

It has become a necessity to formalize and enforce policies restricting unsupervised activity on campus even as we emphasize the freedom that we expect our students to enjoy in a responsible way.  Should your son experience an unexpected injury, we need to have a staff member who is directly responsible for your son’s appropriate care.

To this end, please note that only students under the direct supervision of a staff member may stay after school. Supervised study is available in the library from dismissal until 4:45 p.m. From 4:45 p.m. until late bus pickup at 5:00 p.m., students are to wait in the Firebird Fieldhouse Main Lobby Area for their transportation home. With the exception of the library, the academic buildings close at 4:00 p.m. No one may be on campus after 5:00 p.m. who is not under the direct supervision of a staff member. No one may wait at school for activities that begin beyond 5:00 p.m. The campus may not be used for athletic “pickup” games of any kind or any other sports activity not under the direct supervision of a staff member.

Once a student has finished an activity, he must either get transportation off campus or report to the library if prior to 4:45 p.m., or the Firebird Fieldhouse Main Lobby if between 4:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. Students remaining on campus beyond 5:00 p.m. must be under the direct supervision of a staff member or they risk disciplinary action.
