Christian Formation - Completion of Requirements and Athletic Eligibility

Annual Expectations:

  • required attendance in class (classes can not be made up on the other day)  (Fall session for 2020-21 will be virtual/online; Spring session TBD)
  • Level appropriate Prayer Experience attendance (Grades 1-6)
  • Reconciliation Service attendance (Grades *4 - 11) - Suspended for 2020-21
  • Completion of required grade level Memorization by the end of each semester (Grades *4 - 6)
  • Completion of 8 Mass Reflections (Grades *4 - 11) 
  • Required Hours of Service (Grades 7 - 11)
  • Grade level Enrichment fulfilled (Grades *4 - 9 needs 1 with a parent)
  • Acceptable Behavior - If a student reaches a third offense, their participation in Athletics will be suspended.


An important part of your child's formation experience includes preparation to receive Sacraments.  When a child is not fully prepared through attendance / participation in class and completion of the requirements, his or her readiness to receive the Sacraments will be reviewed and potentially delayed.  Discussion with Director(s), Pastor, and parents along with your child, will determine what additional instruction and formation needs to be completed.


Eligibility for students in grades 5 - 11 in the St. Leonard Youth Athletics require students to have completed all requirements for the year prior to participation and to continue to fulfill the requirements for the year of participation.

  *Please note, status in Grade FOUR affects eligibility for participation in Grade FIVE.

Per Christian Formation eligibility standards

Students not enrolled in classes cannot be considered to have "Completed Requirements" for the current year and will not be eligible to participate in our sports programs in the following year.

All Requirements must be completed by March 152021 in order for any fourth through eleventh grade student to participate in the St. Leonard Sports Programs for the 2021 - 2022 year.

Students MAY NOT leave class early or miss class due to a St. Leonard Sports Athletics event/activity.  Participating in the St. Leonard Athletics is a PRIVILEGE for students who continue to complete all requirements in Christian Formation.  Many parishes in the Archdiocese ONLY allow their Day School students to participate in their parish Sports Programs.
