Promotion and Retention 

A student graduating from Cathedral must have 24 unit credits. The minimal progression rate toward classification will be as follows:

            Sophomore classification           5 1/ 2 unit credits
            Junior classification                    11 unit credits
            Senior classification                    17 unit credits

Under no circumstances can a student “skip” a classification level regardless of the num­ber of credits.

Due to the consecutive nature of the course, a student can take only one English course during the school year. It is strongly recommended that a student failing English attend the Summer School Mastery Program following the failing year. A student must success­fully complete the prerequisite course before scheduling the next course in this subject.
