High School Grading and GPA Calculation

Calculating GPA

Confused about how your high school GPA is calculated? Here are the steps that are taken to determine your semester cumulative GPA:

  • Each letter grade is associated with a numeric grade value (see the chart below)
  • Multiply each numeric grade value by the number of credits the course was worth
  • Add these numbers together = GPA Points
  • Divide the GPA Points by the total number of credits you took = GPA
  • See example in links
  • Your total cumulative GPA consists of all high school courses, including any taken during middle school
