All students must maintain at least a C-minus average overall in their subjects to be promoted. If a child does not meet school requirements for promotion, then it is the parent’s responsibility to see that their child is tutored and brought up to the required level before school re-opens in the fall. All students requiring tutoring must have their tutor approved by the administrator prior to the tutorial sessions.
Academic courses will be given a letter grade based on the scale below. Behavior will be evaluated and noted on report cards if necessary. Non-academic courses will be given a grade based on the Satisfactory (S), Needs Improvement (N), or Unsatisfactory (U) scale. A plus or minus sign is used to indicate degrees of performance. The preschool uses a different system, which is explained on the report card. Grades from other schools will be averaged according to the SECA system. (*South Carolina uniform grading scale)
F 69-63 (Partial GPR Point Credit)
F 63 or Below (No GPR Point Credit)
ELEMENTARY: Any student receiving a combination of D’s or F’s that would hinder his progress if passed to the next grade will have a notation on his report card of “retained on probation” or “conditionally promoted.” The child will be required to receive tutoring by a school-approved tutor during the summer for a specified amount of time each week. The child will also be required to pass (78 percent or above) a test in the area(s) in which he received the low grade(s) before being admitted into the next grade in the fall. Students receiving an F in three academic subjects, one of which is either math or language arts, are automatically retained.
MIDDLE SCHOOL: Any student who receives two failing grades in any academic subject (including Bible) on his yearly average will be retained. A student receiving three or more D’s or combination of D’s and F’s could also be retained, or required to attend summer school or be tutored, and placed on academic probation for the next school year. Students who are required to have summer tutoring will need to use a Soaring Eagles Christian Academy approved tutor.
HIGH SCHOOL: In grades 9 through 12, class placement is determined by units earned –9th grade: less than 6 units; 10th grade: 6 units; 11th grade: 12 units; 12th grade: 18 units.
