  • Earn at least 50% in at least two subjects as of the most recent report card. For co-curricular participation in the Fall season the previous June report card marks will be used as the benchmark (marks earned at summer school will replace the June failure)
  • Attend regularly and on time, all classes and meet all course requirements (assignments & tests etc.)
  • Not have any unexplained absences or lates
  • Comply with Newtonbrook’s Code of Respect & Behaviour

Academic eligibility is officially reviewed during the school reporting periods; however, it may be reviewed at the discretion of the staff advisor, teacher, parent or administration.The staff advisor for each co-curricular activity is responsible for informing the student of their “ineligibility”. Students who are deemed ineligible for participation have the right to an appeal.
