High School – VHSL Athletic Eligibility
James Monroe High School runs a 4×4 Hybrid schedule (student schedules
are comprised of A/B classes, 4×4 classes, or a combination of the two). As
such, there are three different course scheduling scenarios to meet VHSL
- A/B Class Schedule:
a senior taking
all A/B classes needs a minimum of five A/B classes on his/her schedule to be
eligible to participate in a Fall sport. He/she must have a passing grade in a
minimum of five of those A/B classes to maintain athletic eligibility for the Winter
- 4×4 Class
Schedule: a senior taking only 4×4 classes needs a minimum of three classes on his/her
schedule for Term 1 to be eligible to participate in a Fall sport. He/she must pass
a minimum of three Term 1 classes and take three more classes during Term 2 to maintain
athletic eligibility for the Winter and/or Spring.
- Combination Schedule: a senior taking a combination of the
two (A/B and 4×4) would need to take and pass one of the following class load
options to be eligible for a Fall, Winter, or Spring sport.
- 1 4×4 class (per Term) and 3 A/B classes
- 2 4×4 classes (per Term) and 1 A/B class
encouraged to take more than the minimum course load.
