GRADE POINT AVERAGE
Each semester, an academic grade point average (GPA) is determined twice, at the end of the quarter and again at the end of the semester. It is based on the grades earned in all classes with the following exceptions: Independent Study, and Teacher Assistantships. Separately, the quarter and semester GPAs are used to determine eligibility for participation in extracurricular and/or athletic activities. In addition, the semester GPA is used to determine eligibility for the MC Honor Roll and Dean’s List. A cumulative GPA using semester grades starting freshman year is also calculated. Both cumulative 9th -12th grade weighted and 10th -12th grade weighted GPAs are reported to colleges and universities on a student’s transcript, as well as 9th -12th grade unweighted GPAs. The cumulative, weighted GPA is used to determine Graduation with Academic Distinction, Life Membership in the Honor Roll or Dean’s List.
