Academic Counseling

Mission Statement
 
The Counseling Team is dedicated to nurturing and fostering the intellectual, spiritual and emotional attributes found in each of our students. Our offices maintain an open door policy as students are made to feel both welcomed and treasured. It is our goal to assist all students in recognizing their individual talents as they progress toward their collegiate years and emerge as well-rounded young adults who add to the intellectual, social and philanthropic aspects of our society.
 
Students are welcome to make an appointment to see their academic counselor via email or drop by before school, after school, during lunch and office hours. Counselors may also request for students during the school day. 
 
 
Anyone with a D or F by mid-quarter is placed automatically on Academic Probation. 
 
To participate in sports or activities, a student must have a 2.0 or above. At the semester, anyone who is below a 2.0 may not participate in any sports or activities. Status is reviewed after each quarter.
What is A-G Subject Requirement?
 
The intent of the “A-G” Subject Requirement is to ensure that students can participate fully in the first-year program at the University in a wide variety of fields of study. The requirements are written deliberately for the benefit of all students expecting to enter the University, and not for preparation for specific majors. UC faculty considers the Subject Requirement to be effective preparation, on many levels, for undergraduate work at the University. This pattern of study assures the faculty that the student has attained a body of general knowledge that will provide breadth and perspective to new, more advanced study. Fulfillment of the “a-g” pattern also demonstrates that the student has attained essential critical thinking and study skills..

With the exception of PE and Health, all graduation requirements must be taken at St. Bernard during the regular school year. In order to earn a St. Bernard High School diploma, a student must have attained a minimum of 240 academic credits distributed as follows:
