GRADE SCALE &

CALCULATION OF QUALITY POINT AVERAGE (QPA)


Quality Point Average (QPA) is calculated by dividing the total number of quality points by the total number of attempted credits. 


EXAMPLE:  (QP) 24.750  / (ATT) 6.25 = (AVG) 3.960


If a course is repeated, both grades will be figured into the QPA.  Only one credit is allowed toward graduation requirements.


If a course is failed, the credit value for the course is added to the attempted credits.  The failed course will also be figured in to the QPA.


Gold Cord (Highest Honors) - QPA Higher than a 4.0

Silver Cord (High Honors) - QPA of 3.75 to 4.0

Red Cord (Honors) - QPA of 3.5 to 3.749

Blue NHS Stole - National Honor Society (3.85)

* Military Cord - Those entering Military Program/Service 


** Qualifications for students to receive Honor Cords are based upon the total QPA at the end of the third quarter of the senior year.
