GUIDELINES FOR STUDENT PARTICIPATION IN
EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

  1. While participation in extra-curricular activities is encouraged, school work and good behavior are considered first priority. A student must maintain a 2.0 GPA to participate in an ACDS sponsored extra-curricular activity. If, during the current school year, a student’s GPA falls below a 2.0, that student will be ineligible to participate until such time as the School Building Level Committee (SBLC) ascertains that the student in question has complied with eligibility rules. The SBLC is composed of all teachers that currently have the student in question in their class, the administration, and a predetermined chairman.
  2. Any club or organization operating under the name of Alexandria Country Day School must submit a constitution to the administration and the Board of Directors for approval.
  3. Sponsors of curricular and extra-curricular activities may, at their discretion, establish written grooming guides that are more stringent than the general guidelines. These must be approved by the administration.
  4. Students who are absent for a half day or more will not be allowed to participate in any extra-curricular activities held after school hours on the day of the absence.

ACDS provides its students with team interscholastic athletic opportunities in basketball, baseball, softball, soccer, cheer, golf, and cross country.

Teams typically play games on Mondays and Thursdays; players are also involved in weekend tournaments. Country Day competes against public, parochial, and independent schools.

Intramural Basketball- ACDS students in 1st thru 8th grade are eligible to play Intramural Basketball.  Coaches are volunteer parents; please consider signing up to coach.  No experience necessary!  The season will run for 4 weeks in mid-January thru February with games played on Saturday's in the ACDS gym.
