Our students leave high school with a Grade Point Average on a 0-4 scale. On this scale, each final course grade is represented by a number (A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, F=0) and those numbers are averaged together to calculate the student's GPA. The GPA is used by colleges, universities and scholarship organizations to help determine the student's selection for a variety of programs and enrollment. The GPA is displayed on the student's transcript and it is updated every January and June.
Taking the ACT
Each year, every Junior will take the ACT at least one time with the opportunity to take it as many times as they like. This year, the entire Junior class will take the ACT at school on Tuesday, April 2nd. Students may sign up to take the test prior to that or they may use the April test as their baseline for improvement. Each student should plan on taking the ACT a minimum of three times in order to achieve a fair representation of their academic aptitude. For more information or to sign up directly, visit www.actstudent.org. Students may also stop by our offices to get information, study materials and fee waivers for those eligible.
