All new 6th - 12th grade students begin on probation, and the student and his parents are required to sign and abide by the probation agreement.
All new elementary students are admitted conditionally on a nine weeks trial period. If the child fails to make acceptable progress or does not adjust to the program of the school, the parents will be expected to give additional help at home.

Additional probation may be set for not completing homework, failing to meet other academic requirements in a subject, or as a result of disciplinary problems.
