The Athletic Committee provides an opportunity for students to participate in competitive grade school level sports through Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) sponsored activities.

Eligibility Requirements

The academic success of a student is the primary reason for attendance at St. Jude Catholic School. St. Jude Catholic School also sponsors many extra-curricular activities. These extra-curricular activities are intended to enrich the academic and social experiences of the student-participants and are considered part of the academic process.  Therefore it is a priority of St. Jude Catholic School to help students find a balance between academic success and extra-curricular participation to ensure a student’s academic success is not negatively affected. Therefore, students participating in any extra-curricular activity sponsored by St. Jude School must meet minimum academic performance and conduct standards in order to be eligible to participate.  These extra-curricular activities include all interscholastic athletics, cheerleading, drama club, math club, the student council, Destination Imagination, and other activities as determined by the Principal.

 

Academic Requirements

Prior to beginning participation in an extra-curricular activity, student-participants must have earned eligibility on their interim report card or end of quarter report card.

A student becomes ineligible if either of the following apply:

  • He/she receives an F (below 60%) in any academic subject.

  • He/she receives a conduct grade of D+ or below.

Students who become ineligible on their interim report card or end of quarter report card will be placed on probation for a two week period including 10 school days.  During this probationary period, students will be expected to attend practices but may not take part in any scheduled competitions or games.  Students should not attend competitions or games in uniform but should sit on the bench and cheer for their teammates. During this two week probationary period, the school will design an action plan to help the student balance academic success and extra-curricular activities by improving study habits and time management. As part of the probationary period, the student is expected to adhere to the guidelines and terms of the action plan. If after this two week period, the teacher determines that the student’s academic performance has improved to the policy standard required, the students eligibility may be fully reinstated.

If the student fails to improve as a result of the action plan then the student will be ineligible from any participation in extra-curricular activities and may not participate in any practices, competitions, or games until eligibility is reinstated at the next interim report card or end of quarter report card. An “Incomplete” due to extraordinary circumstances (extended illness, death in a family, etc.) also results in a student entering a probationary period and being placed on an action plan.

The student is responsible for obtaining a release form from his/her homeroom teacher on Reinstatement Day (after the tenth school day) and getting it completed by the teacher and an administrator.  Coaches will not allow a student to begin participating until the release form has been obtained and signed appropriately.  A copy will be given to the coach by the student.

After each interim report and end of quarter report, a list of ineligible students will be compiled and reported to the President of the Athletic Committee and he/she will notify coaches of those students who are not eligible to play.

 

Conduct Requirements

To earn eligibility for extra-curricular activities, student-participants must maintain a grade of at least “a “C-” in conduct on both mid-terms and end-of-quarter report cards, regardless of academic grades in order to maintain eligibility for all school sponsored extra-curricular activities.  If a student becomes ineligible because of his/her conduct grade, that student will adhere to the rules of the probationary period and will be placed on an action plan. The student will be reevaluated after ten school days and follow the guidelines set forth for Reinstatement Day.

What Others Say

Michelle Kucharski

SCRIP is a great way to supplement your tuition at St. Jude. I always get my family involved by having them purchase SCRIP through me. Each year, I have enough in my SCRIP account to take care of my May payment and allow for a credit for the next year’s tuition. If you plan ahead and stock up, SCRIP is a great way to support yourself through tuition. It is also a great way for those without kids at St. Jude’s to support the tuition assistance program.

My sister always used SCRIP but we didn’t because we just would forget. Now that our daughter is in school, I realize how easy it is and what we have been missing. SCRIP has been amazing. The variety of shops, restaurants, etc., is great, plus it is easy to use the special order/prepay format. I love the program!

Over the past year, I have saved close to $500 on my tuition! I purchase my weekly groceries at Scott’s/Kroger’s, my gas at either Marathon or Speedway, and on Saturdays, I treat myself to my favorite Starbucks coffee. I’m glad I tried the program.
