Academic Requirements

Any student who has received a grade of F in a course must attend the DeMatha's High School Summer Session assuming that course is offered during the session. At the high school level, the courses traditionally offered are Biology, Algebra 1, Algebra 1 Part 1, Algebra 1 Part 2, Algebra 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, all levels of English, World History, U.S. History, Spanish 1, Spanish 2, German, and all levels of Theology.

Students are also required to attend the summer session if they meet one of the following criteria:
  • A grade of D in regular Algebra 1, Algebra 1 Part 1/2, or Algebra 2
  • A grade of D in the first two levels of a foreign language
  • A grade of D in U.S. History
Special Notes:
  • A grade of D in Honors Algebra 1 or Honors Algebra 2 does not result in required summer school. The student will drop out of the honors math program.
  • In some cases, the student may be asked to repeat the course.
Failure to make up a class in summer school will result in a $400 fee being assessed for administrative and scheduling purposes

Students are encouraged to attend Summer School to improve their grade in particular courses. The Summer School grade will appear on the student's transcript along with the original grade. Both are averaged into a student's cumulative GPA. For students seeking athletic scholarships, the NCAA Clearinghouse will accept the Summer School grade as a replacement for the original grade.
