    • Extra-curricular activities are a valuable and enriching part of the educational experience at Trinity. However, scholastic achievement retains priority over any extra-curricular activity.  Students participating in extra-curricular activities must maintain minimum academic standards. The following academic standards have been established for those students participating in extra-curricular activities at Trinity: Students must maintain a C (70%) grade point average, with no failing grades, in the following core subjects: theology, science, social studies, math, and ELA.

Eligibility will be checked monthly, on the 15th of each month.  If a student does not meet these standards, he or she will be placed on academic probation, parents will be contacted about this probation via letter. To be removed from academic probation a student must raise their grades and complete an Academic Eligibility Form, found in the office. (Effort and Growth may be considered when approving eligibility.) The student will be ineligible to participate in student council until all requirements have been met. Any exceptions to the eligibility standard due to a student’s level of academic capability will be made only at the discretion of the teacher.

  • If a student receives a suspension that student will be removed from student council for the semester. If a student receives a second suspension they will be removed from student council for the year and lose the ability to apply for student council forever.
