Academy attendance matters. It is arguably one of the most important indicators of academy success.
You cannot learn what you are not there to learn. Students who attend the academy regularly improve their chances of being academically successful. There are obvious exceptions to both sides of the rule.
There are a few students deemed academically successful who also have attendance issues and a few students who struggle academically who are always present. However, in most cases, strong attendance correlates with academic success, and poor attendance correlates with academic struggles.
