# How to Calculate Grade Point Average

1. Multiply the Grade Value by the Credit Value to calculate Quality Points
2. Add the Quality Points to find Total Quality Points Earned.
3. Add the Credits to find the Total Credits Attempted. Year-long classes are all one credit classes and half-year or semester classes are all 0.5 credits. The only exception is physical education classes which are 0.25 credits.
4. Divide the Total Quality Points Earned by the Total Credits Attempted to find GPA.

Example of a Grade Point Average Calculation:

 Class Grade Grade Value Credit Value Quality Points English B 3.000 1.0 3.000 Math A- 3.667 1.0 3.667 Science B+ 3.333 1.0 3.333 U.S. History C+ 2.333 0.5 1.167 P.E. A 4.000 0.25 1.000 Band A 4.000 1.0 4.000 Food for Fitness B- 2.667 0.5 1.333 Total Quality Points 17.167 Total Credits 5.25 GPA 3.270

Regular grading system at the high school:

 A = 93-100 = 4.000 C = 73-76 = 2.000 A- = 90-92 = 3.670 C- = 70-72 = 1.670 B+ = 87-89 = 3.330 D+ = 67-69 = 1.330 B = 83-86 = 3.000 D = 63-66 = 1.000 B- = 80-82 = 2.670 D- = 60-62 = 0.670 C+ = 77-79 = 2.330 F = 59-Below = 0.000

Weighted grading scale and point values for AP courses:

 A = 93-100 = 5.000 C = 73-76 = 3.000 A- = 90-92 = 4.670 C- = 70-72 = 2.670 B+ = 87-89 = 4.330 D+ = 67-69 = 2.330 B = 83-86 = 4.000 D = 63-66 = 2.000 B- = 80-82 = 3.670 D- = 60-62 = 1.670 C+ = 77-79 = 3.330 F = 59-Below >= 0.000
