Academic Honors and Grade Point Average (GPA)

At the end of each quarter, students who achieve an average of 3.60 or higher in all credit subjects with no grade below a “C” receive maximum honors (at least five such subjects must be on a letter-grade basis). Those who earn an average of 3.0 to 3.59 on a similar basis receive general honors.

In arriving at averages:

  • A = 4
  • B = 3
  • C = 2
  • D = 1

An extra .5 is added to the GPA value for each honors or Advanced Placement course. If an honors and AP course are offered in the same subject, the honors course is then weighted by adding a .25 (i.e. Honors Biology).

A grade of ‘P’ (Pass) does not impact the calculation of GPA, but could impact honor roll eligibility. A grade of ‘D’, ‘F’, ‘Z’ or ‘Inc’ (Incomplete) in any subject including physical education will exclude a student from honors.

Students must carry a minimum of 5.0 credits (enrolled in 5 classes per semester) plus PE per year to be considered both a full-time student and eligible for Honor Roll status. Any independent study work (DIS) would be considered an addition to these minimum requirements.
