GPAs

Students who take high school credit courses earn a Grade Point Average (GPA) which is recorded on the student’s transcript.

When a student applies to colleges, scholarship programs, or employers and provides a transcript, the GPA of the individual is usually considered as a factor in the selection of the individual.

The Grade Point Average is composed of only eligible high school courses that students take.

Some high school credit courses are “weighted,” meaning they earn additional value in the GPA. For each semester completed in a “weighted” class, the student earns additional points on the average for the class.

Weighted grades will not appear on report cards or transcripts. However, all Pre-Advanced and Advanced Placement courses will be specifically designated on the official transcript.

When a course is a full credit, each semester grade is counted in the GPA and if the course is weighted, the student earns additional points on each semester average for the class.

“Weighted” courses include the following types of classes:

  • Pre-Advanced Placement
  • Advanced Placement
  • Dual Enrollment

Grades earned in athletics, band, choir, and physical education are not used in determining a student’s GPA.

Grades transferred as “passing” will be awarded credit, but these grades will not be used in determining the student’s cumulative average.

Grades earned in athletics, band, choir, and physical education are not used in determining a student’s GPA.

The student’s cumulative GPA (grade point average) is determined by each semester’s grades based on a 100 point scale. Advanced courses are considered grade-weighted and are given additional points per semester when calculating the GPA.

GPA information is updated on Naviance at the end of every semester.
