Blackman Collegiate Academy Academic Standards

All Collegiate Academy students are expected to lead the BHS student body in academics. Any student whose grade falls below a C or whose GPA falls below a 3.0 will be placed on Academic Watch for a semester. During this time, students are expected to raise their grades accordingly. If students do not follow through with the academic expectations, the student will be placed on Academic Probation. At the end of the probationary semester, your membership will be reassessed. If the reason for the probation has been corrected, you will be reinstated as a member in good standing. If the reason for the probation has not been corrected, you will be dismissed from the Collegiate Academy. If you are on probation more than once or in more than one area (academics, extra-curricular, discipline) then you will be dismissed from the Collegiate Academy.
