10. How do you calculate the awards for scholar-athletes?
NCS determines which grading period we use during each sport season to award scholar-athletes. GPA's for scholar athlete recipients are UNWEIGHTED. Fall scholar athletes will use the R2/November grading period. Winter scholar athletes will use the S1/Fall Semester grades. Spring scholar athletes will use the R5/April grading period. In addition there are two types of scholastic awards recognized by NCS. The scholar athlete is the students unweighted GPA for their designated sports grading period (the minimum GPA for this recognition is a 3.5 GPA unweighted). The distinguished scholastic team award is the average GPA for all student-athletes on a specific team during their designated sports grading period (the minimum GPA for this recognition is a 3.0 GPA unweighted team average).
