Calculating Grade Point Average (GPA):
Each grade received in a given grading period is assigned a numerical value, dependent upon its credit value for that grading period (see above grading system). The sum of these numerical values is divided by the number of credits attempted in that grading period to determine a GPA. A GPA is calculated for each student at the end of each grading period.
Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA)/Class Rank:
All final grades from grades 9-12 are averaged to form a cumulative GPA. Students are ranked numerically in their graduating class according to their cumulative GPA. Cumulative GPA and class rank is computed for each student at the end of each semester. Most post secondary opportunities also take class rank and cumulative GPA into consideration when awarding scholarships.
