Academic probation is a period of intense studies geared towards getting our weak students to work at an acceptable pace, through a close supervision of their studies, monitoring of their study habits and teaching them study skills. A student is placed on academic probation when he or she scores below our least acceptable grade of 60% in any of our continuous assessment tests or exams.
Academic probation is also recommended for students that have been absent from regular class instructions for any reason. The student on academic probation does not take part in the following extra-curricular activities: clubs, choir, altar servers, athletic teams, weekend videos, and visiting with friends and families on visiting days.
The student on academic probation will spend those extra-curricular activities period in the Prep room under close supervision that ensures progress in those subjects and areas where the student has difficulties or performs poorly. It is the responsibility of the School Guidance Counsellor, his/her Teacher-Guardian and class teachers to closely supervise students on academic probation and every two weeks these officers give the Principal a brief report on the academic progress of the students.
Subject teachers may also be asked to write a report on a student on academic probation. A student on academic probation will remain in this status until the next academic assessment after the grades for that assessment are published. The student graduates from academic probation only when there is an adequate improvement in grades, a serious improvement in studies is displayed and an increase in earnest academic purpose is noted.
Other students are also encouraged to help those on probation to come off probation as soon as possible.
This is a rare opportunity granted to extra brilliant students to skip a class and be promoted to a higher class after certain conditions have been satisfied.
