For the class of 2020, an exact and final class rank will be calculated at the close of semester one. For the Class of 2021 and beyond, a decile rank system will be put into place. Rank is determined by assigning weighted quality points to midyear and final course grades (for seniors, first semester only). Top weight is given to Advanced Placement courses. Total points are divided by the number of credits attempted. GPA is unweighted and calculated on a 4.0 scale. Students who transfer to Holy Spirit from another high school have their class rank computed using their grades in comparable subjects from their former school but using the Holy Spirit class rank system.
Recognizing the individuality of each student, Holy Spirit offers an uncompromised, challenging and varied program of Academics, Arts, Athletics and Service to Others. With a curriculum that cultivates understanding, respect and compassion, Holy Spirit students receive the foundation needed for success.
The academic program consists of core courses offered on three ability levels: advanced placement/honors, advanced, and college preparatory. Additional electives are offered in art, business, and music (chorus and instrumental). The school operates on an eight period day with forty minute classes that meet every day. The school year is divided into two semesters.
Each student is required service hours in order to be promoted to the next grade level and to graduate. Freshmen are required 10 hours, sophomores 12, juniors 15 and seniors 20. In addition to active service, a reflective paper is required. Hours may include but are not limited to: service to fellow students, faith communities, and local nonprofit and civic organizations. The goal of Christian Service is to empower students to embrace diversity, grow interpersonal skills, and develop compassion for others in their daily lives.
