SCS Percentage/GPA Equivalencies

The percentage/GPA equivalency chart below is designed to be used for determining cumulative GPA only. We do not use this chart to convert marking period grades into GPA, only at semester grades.

GPA - Single Semester Equation

Following is an example of the equation used by the school to compute a student's cumulative grade point average for a semester. 

Equation

1) Using the GPA equivalency scale, assign each semester percentage grade a GPA equivalency: 
Full GPA equivalency for major courses
Half GPA equivalency for minor courses (PE, Music, Art)*
2) Add up the total credit points for each class: 
1 point for major courses 
.50 point for minor courses (PE, Music, Art) 
3) Divide sum of total GPA (1) by total points (2) 


GPA - Multiple Semester Equation
The following is an explanation of the equation used by the school to compute a student's cumulative grade point average for multiple semesters. 

Equation

1) Use the standard single semester equation to compute semester GPA points and credits. 
2) Add all semester's GPA points and credits. 
3) Divide the total of GPA points by the total of credit points.
