GPA includes all numeric graded courses and is weighted. 

Honors Courses [Calculus, Chemistry, Honors U.S. History, Honors (College) English, Advanced Geometry, Advanced Physics, Honors Algebra II, Honors Algebra I, and Honors Physical Science] and Advanced Placement courses (online through VLN) are weighted on a 5.0 scale to determine class rank, Valedictorian and Salutatorian status.

Weighted courses are calculated on a 5.0 scale (add 1.0 to the grade point value for the grade received). For instance, a student who receives a 99 or 100 in a weighted class would receive a grade point value of 5.0 (4.0 + 1.0). A student who receives an 88 in a weighted class would receive a grade point value of 4.2 (3.2 + 1.0).

Grade                                                                                                           Grade Point Value

96-98                                                  (A; Excellent)                                                 3.8

94-95                                                  (A-; Well Done)                                              3.6

81-84                                                  (C+; Average)                                                 2.5

78-80                                                  (C; Average)                                                    2.1

75-77                                                  (C-; Average)                                                   1.8

65-67                                                  (D-; Below Average)                                       1.0

Below 65                                            (F; Failed)                                                        0.0

GPA is calculated by Renweb and is included on the student transcript.

To determine GPA manually:

  • Multiply the Grade Point Value for each course by the number of credits for the course. For instance, a grade of 98 in a one-credit course would have a value of 3.8, and a grade of 98 in a course that is worth .2 credits would have a value of 0.76.
  • Add the credit values together.
  • Divide the total credit value by the total number of credits earned.

Example: A student has grades of 99, 98, 95, 94, 88, 80, and 85 in full-credit subjects and 100 and 96 in partial-credit (.2 credits each) subjects.  The point values for the one-credit courses would be 4.0, 3.8, 3.6, 3.6, 3.2, 2.1 and 2.9.  The point values for the .2-credit courses would be 0.8 and 0.76.  Add the grade point values to get 24.76.  Divide 24.76 by the 7.4 credits earned to get a GPA of 3.35.
