Students wishing to compete in interscholastic activities such as athletics, music and speech and debate must meet Academic Eligibility Standards established by the Missouri State High School Activities Association. In order to compete during a semester, a student must have earned a minimum of 3.0 units of credit the preceding semester and/or during summer school and be enrolled in and regularly attending courses that offer a minimum of 3.0 units of credit at Clayton High School (this includes Vocational Tech School and the Collaborative School). Clayton High School expects all students participating in extracurricular activities to exhibit good attendance patterns and good overall citizenship. Student athletes and their parents sign a pledge to support Clayton High School’s Tobacco, Alcohol and other Drugs code. All freshmen are automatically eligible.
Tuition paying students in grades 10 – 12 who do not reside in Clayton are ineligible for varsity competition until they have been enrolled in CHS for 365 days. Tuition paying students ARE immediately eligible for non-varsity sports upon their enrollment.
All students involved in extracurricular activities must maintain a 2.0 GPA each quarter to be eligible to participate. Students who are below a 2.0 GPA at the conclusion of the quarter will be assigned Academic Support. Students who maintain less than a 2.0 GPA for two consecutive quarters or do not attend Academic Support will not be eligible to participate.
