Step 3: Summer School Health & Geography Be very sure of your summer school plans before making course selections SS is primarily for remediation or making up deficiencies for graduation SS can also be taken for core/original credit – this year is Independent Study only, and student must have “impacted” schedule as defined by AVID, Band/Colorguard, Orchestra, Choir, Leadership, Peer Counseling, Folklorico, Yearbook MOST IMPORTANT: –When you register, plan on successfully completing the coursework, or you will risk not being able to take the courses in the fall
National Collegiate Athletic Association - NCAA CW students desiring to become eligible for an NCAA athletic scholarship must meet certain criteria for Division I and Division II: Earn a high school diploma. Complete a minimum of 16 core NCAA approved courses. Earn at least a 2.3 GPA in these courses. Earn a qualifying test score on ACT or SAT and meet an increased sliding scale standard. (An SAT score of 820 requires a 2.5 GPA in NCAA approved courses, for example.) Successfully complete 10 of the 16 NCAA approved courses before the start of the seventh semester of high school to include English, math, and science. Request final amateurism certification from NCAA. (Students advised to request certification via the NCAA Clearinghouse during the junior year of high school.) Independent summer-school and/or online courses do not meet the NCAA standard anymore.
Step 4: Required Courses - “P” indicates a course that will prepare you for college –“H” indicates same but at HONORS level –English, Math, PE, Health & Geography are all required courses for freshman year.
Understanding Grades and Credits You must earn a minimum of C grade in all “P” courses to be eligible for college You will earn 5 credits per semester for each course, totaling 10 per course, per year That means each year potentially earns your child 60 credits Multiply by 4 = 240 credits The requirement is 230 credits to graduate from CW.
