Grade Point Averages 

What is GPA? 

Grade point average (GPA) is a numerical summary of your grades from high school. 

It is used to determine class rank. 

Colleges use rank and GPA to compare you to other applicants.

How is GPA determined? 

“Points” are assigned to the grade you earned in a class. 

You receive points for each semester average. 

Use the scale in the GPA Scale in the Student Handbook or JR/SR Handbook.

The GPA Scale 

GPA is on a 4.0+ weighted scale. 

Regular classes use the “regular” scale. 

More difficult classes use the “advanced” scale or the “honors/GT/AP/Pre-AP” scale.
