Grade Promotion

Elementary School:

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 as measured by MAP, faculty assessment, or other means, may be retained. Furthermore, students who do not show readiness from a maturity standpoint may be retained. While uncommon, retention can be a very beneficial tool for the struggling student to allow him or her to fill in learning gaps before exacerbating them with even more material. 

 

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 70 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 subjects must repeat the entire grade. A student who receives an F in any core subject for a semester (up to 2 subjects) 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 as measured by MAP, faculty assessment, or other means, may be retained. Furthermore, students who do not show readiness from a maturity standpoint may be retained. While uncommon, retention can be a very beneficial tool for the struggling student to allow him or her to fill in learning gaps before exacerbating them with even more material. 

 

High School (Grades 9 through 12):

Students must pass all courses with a final semester grade of 70 or higher. Students whose semester grades are below a 70 will need to meet with administration to establish a course of action to help the student gain the knowledge he or she needs to earn a 70 or better on the course(s) in question in future semesters. Some courses may be arranged to be continued over the summer.
