Charter Star Athletics Offerings at Great River School:

Charter Stars: Registration, Eligibility, & Fees

All student athletes must be fully registered to participate in our Athletics offerings.
Charter Stars Registration Form here (School Forms Page).

Athletic Eligibility:
Great River School values both academics and athletics. We expect our student athletes to put scholarship first. Student athletes that are placed on the Dean's academic concern list will lose their athletic eligibility until their academics improve. Athletes deemed ineligible due to academics may participate in practices at the discretion of the Dean, the Athletic Director, and their coaches; they will remain ineligible to play in games until their academics improve and are approved for full participation by the Dean and the Athletic Director.
