Athletic Eligibility:

Freshmen athletic eligibility is determined by the guidelines set forth by OHSAA and Gahanna-Jefferson School District. In order for a student to participate in a sport, they must meet these minimum requirements.

1st Nine Weeks

A student enrolled in the first grading period after advancement from the eighth grade must have passed 75% of those subjects during the preceding grading period in which the student was enrolled. In order to be eligible in grades 9-12, a student athlete must be currently enrolled and must have been enrolled in school immediately preceding the grading period. During the preceding grading period, the student athlete must have received passing grades in a minimum of five one-credit or .5 credit courses or the equivalent, which count toward graduation.  

Afterwards

In addition to the OHSAA scholastic requirements, the Gahanna-Jefferson School District has set a minimum grade point average in order to participate in athletics for grades 7-12. Student athletes must have a GPA of at least 1.5 for the preceding 9 weeks. If a student athlete does not have a 1.5 GPA, he/she is ineligible for the entire 9 weeks (There are no waivers.) If the GPA is between a 1.5 and a 1.99 GPA, the student athlete is required to attend a minimum of three study table sessions per week. Six one-hour study tables will be offered each week. Failure to attend three sessions in any week will cause a student athlete to be ineligible for the following week (Monday-Sunday). A letter detailing when and where the study table sessions will be held will be given to those students who must attend the study tables.
