Grade Point Average

At the end of each marking period, a grade point average (GPA) is calculated by averaging each grade with the frequency of the class meeting. For example, a class that meets alternate days will count half as much as a class that meets  daily.

Cumulative Grade Point Average

At the end of each year, a cumulative GPA is calculated by taking an average of all credit-bearing courses a student has completed. This includes eighth-grade courses that earn high school credits.

Weighted Grade Point Average

A weighted GPA is calculated by applying a weight of 1.05 (5%) to honors-level courses and 1.10 (10%) to AP/dual
enrollment courses, such as SUPA, SUNY ESF, SUNY Oswego, Cazenovia College or Onondaga Community College courses.
