    How do I calculate my GPA?

    GPA calculations are computer generated and based on the number of quality points received for each grade that you receive on your transcript. Your GPA is calculated by finding the average of your quality points, or adding up the total number of quality points and dividing it by the total number of credits earned. Students will receive an additional quality point for each AP and dual enrollment course (noted below). Please note that students will only receive an additional .5 of a quality point for the HOPE/Zell Miller GPA calculation and the GPA cannot exceed a 4.0 (including AP/DE courses). 

    On-Level Courses:

    A= 4

    B= 3

    C= 2

    F= 0

    AP/Dual Enrollment Courses:

    A= 5

    B= 4

    C= 3

    F= 0

    HOPE/Zell Miller CORE AP/DE Courses:
