Academic Plan: Our coaches concern themselves with stimulating each student athlete so that he or she desires to secure the finest education possible. The following rules are based on our Athletic Mission Statement:
- Always be on time, in your seat, with materials ready for class.
- Recognize the classroom teacher as the absolute authority and follow his or her rules, showing respect at all times.
- Dress neatly: shoes tied, pants pulled up and belted, and shirts tucked in (men).
- Never prepare to leave before the end of class.
- Make sure to turn in all assignments on time, both homework and daily work.
- Never stop working in a class, no matter how badly you may struggle during the semester.
- Communicate with your coach.
- Coaches will communicate with the student athlete and the teachers.
- Identified students will be monitored and/or attend study hall or tutoring sessions.
