GPA Calculation- Grades are computed on a 4.0 scale. All classes awarding a letter grade are calculated in the weighted and un-weighted GPA.

Rank- Rank is calculated at the end of each semester. Both a weighted and un-weighted grade point average and rank are reported on the final transcript.

NY = the student has “not yet” met minimum proficiency (Standards) to earn credit in the course.

Standards-Based Grading (SBG) measures student proficiency relative to specific learning standards. A grade is based solely on a student’s demonstration of course content knowledge and mastery of specific course aligned skills.

Latin Honors System Beginning with the 2017-18 freshman class, students scheduled to graduate in 2021 and thereafter, the traditional valedictorian and salutatorian honors will be replaced by the Latin honors system, which grants students Summa Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude and Cum Laude titles based on their grade point average.
