Grade Promotion

Elementary School:

A final grade of 60 or above is considered passing for all subjects in kindergarten through 5th grade. A student who receives an F in three or more core subjects (Bible, English, Social Studies, Mathematics, Science) for more than 2 grading quarters must repeat the entire grade. A student who receives an F in any core subject for 1-2 grading quarters may be required to participate in an academic management plan over the summer to ensure he or she is prepared for the next grade level, and will be placed on academic probation. A student whose performance is below grade level may be retained. 

 

Upper School (Grades 6-12):

Students who fail to achieve progression requirements stated below shall perform corrective action approved by the school prior to proceeding to the next course level. 

 

Middle School (Grades 6 through 8):

A final grade of 60 or above is considered passing for all subjects in 6th through 8th grades. A student who receives a semester grade of F in three or more core subjects (Bible, English, Social Studies, Mathematics, Science) must repeat the entire grade. A student who receives an F in any core subject for a semester (up to 2) will be required to make up the failed semester in that subject(s) over the summer in order to be permitted to progress to the next grade level. The student will be placed on academic probation, and all remediation work must be approved by the administration. A student whose performance is below grade level may be retained. 

 

Middle school students in need of credit recovery are allowed a maximum of six half credits (for a total of up to 3 credits) of remedial/credit recovery coursework throughout their three years in middle school at OCS. 

 

Grades 9 through 12:

 

Students must pass core courses (Bible, English, Social Studies, Mathematics, Science) with a final grade of 70 or higher. A student will be permitted one final grade below 70 (but at least a 60) in a core course per year and still be awarded credit. Any course over one (per year) in which the final grade is below 70 must be made up over the summer. Any course in which a 59 or lower is earned must be made up for credit to be awarded. In any situation in which the student must make up the course, he or she will be placed on academic probation. All remediation work must be approved by the administration. 

 

High school students in need of credit recovery are allowed a maximum of four half credits (for a total of up to 2 credits) of remedial/credit recovery coursework throughout their four years in high school at OCS.
