Cathedral Preparatory School
Villa Maria Academy


  • Each student-athlete will be monitored as to his academic progress a minimum of once every two weeks. This will be done via our computer system which tracks student failures through their teachers.
  • Teachers will rate each student-athlete on his ACADEMIC WORK ONLY, by marking him as PASS or FAIL. 
  • Eligibility checks will take place on Wednesdays unless otherwise indicated in an announcement or notification. 
  • If a student-athlete’s work is rated as UNSATISFACTORY (two or more failures), he will have until the following Monday (five days) to satisfy any deficiencies. 
  • Two FAILING marks shall render a student-athlete INELIGIBLE for that WEEK’S competition, no matter how many or how few events/games he has scheduled. 
  • Once a student-athlete is rendered ineligible, he may not participate in a game under ANY circumstances. A student may continue to practice at the head coaches' discretion, but may not participate or even dress for any contest. 
  • In order to regain eligibility, the student-athlete must raise the deficient grades by the following Monday. A separate sheet will be given to the student for him to have signed by his teachers to track his progress. 
  • Failure to return this sheet to the athletic office by that Monday at 3:30pm will result in an automatic two-week suspension from the sport. 
  • Quarter grades, following established PIAA guidelines, shall determine participation after their monitoring periods.
