Students enrolled in the Exploration Academy will be judged for eligibility in extra-curricular activities based upon progress toward their academic goals.

Failure to make progress toward academic goals will affect academic eligibility to participate in extra-curricular activities as provided herein. The Exploration Academy staff shall determine whether students are making progress toward their academic goals.

Eligibility for participation in extra-curricular activities is based upon the VAHS academic calendar. Students will be judged eligible for extra-curricular activities at mid-quarter, first quarter, first semester, 3rd quarter, and 2nd semester.
