If you are a rising 10th-12th grader, you should LEARN MORE ABOUT reclassification
What Exactly is reclassification?
You are eligible to repeat a grade prior to the beginning of your 12th grade year, taking additional courses to bolster your transcript. Reclassification helps you improve your GPA and take on additional classes to better position you for college acceptance. In the private school sector this means you also gain a year of eligibility for athletic competition and improve your opportunities.
Saint Michael is a member of the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association (VISAA). We
follow their rules and regulations regarding Reclassification.
Am I eligible?
A student wishing to repeat a grade (reclassify) must do so for non-athletic reasons and in compliance with all conference requirements, as applicable. The change in grade status must be reflected in all school records and publications as soon as practicable following the date of reclassification. A student may not complete the graduation requirements of a school for any diploma category and receive athletic eligibility in the following year. The student may not be a high school senior. The student shall not have reached the age of 19 on or before August 1 of the school year in which he or she wishes to compete.
Not all private schools allow reclassification. Some private school athletic conferences have specific rules governing reclass.
