The Virginia High School League rules specify that in order to participate in any interscholastic athletic, drama, forensics, debate, and/or scholastic bowl activities, a student must have passed five subjects during the preceding semester and must be enrolled in five subjects during the current semester. In addition to meeting Virginia High School League regulations, students will be required to earn at least a 2.0 grade point average each semester. Grades earned during the second semester of the 2022-2023 school year will determine eligibility for the first semester of the 2022-2023 school year. Students who do not meet the grade point average requirement in a given semester and who wish to participate have the option to use a waiver available to them one semester during the high school years.
Must not have been enrolled in high school for a period of more than eight consecutive semesters, beginning with the semester in which he/she was enrolled for the first time in the ninth grade. The eight consecutive semesters shall be counted continuously from that point, regardless of whether or not he/she remains continuously enrolled.
