The Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA) sets minimum academic requirements in order for students at LHSAA member schools to be eligible to compete in their respective sports. The requirements are based on the number of "Carnegie units" a student-athlete earns for courses passed and on their grade point average (GPA) using a 4.0 scale. It's possible that member schools may choose to require even higher standards of academic achievement for their students to compete in sports, but they cannot set standards that are below the LHSAA's minimum requirements.
