    GRADE POINT AVERAGE

    The guidelines governing grade point average are based on the recommendations of the National Association of Secondary School Principals which are explained below. The grade point average for an Immaculata student is determined by these factors:

    1. Quality Points based on the Weight of the class
    2. Number of Credits

    QP x Cr = Total QP
    G.P.A. = Total QP ÷ Total Credits

    GPA is cumulative and weighted. It is reflective of grades accrued at Immaculata and any previous high school. All subjects, except Physical Education, are included in GPA. Grades earned in each subject are assigned quality points in accordance with the level the course is assigned. Final grades are an average of semester grades.
    The grading system calls for exact numerical grades. Seventy (70) is the passing grade. A final grade below 70 receives no academic credit for the course. If a student fails one or two courses at the end of the year, he/she may not be promoted to the next grade unless the failure is removed by successful completion of an approved credit recovery program, at which time the credit recovery course, will be added to their transcript and they will receive GPA credit for a grade of 70.
