High School Credit: Each semester course is worth .5 credit; a year long course being 1.0 credits. The majority of high school courses fall on the 4.0 grade point average (GPA) scale. Use the scale listed below to visualize the grade to GPA ratio.
A = 4.0 A- = 3.667 B+ = 3.333 B = 3.0 B- = 2.667 C+ = 2.333 C = 2.0 C- = 1.667 D+ = 1.333 D= 1.0 D- = .667
Weighted Credit: The majority of the high school courses fall on the 4.0 GPA scale. Advanced Placement (AP) courses are weighted, which means they fall on a 5.0 scale. Use the scale below to visualize the grade to GPA ratio.
A = 5.0 A- = 4.667 B+ = 4.333 B = 4.0 B- = 3.667 C+ = 3.333 C = 3.0 C- = 2.667 D+ = 2.333 D= 2.0 D- = 1.667
Dual (transcripted) Credit: Courses that are taught from a college curriculum by high school staff members are called transcripted courses. Fortunately, we have several transcripted courses at Chequamegon High School. These courses are not weighted, so they fall on the 4.0 GPA scale; however, a student has the opportunity to earn college credit. These courses are still worth .5 high school credits. If a student receives an A or B in the course, he or she may earn college credit (dependent on the college of choice). Our courses are transcripted through Northcentral Technical College (NTC): CHECK OUT THIS LINK TO WATCH THE DUAL CREDIT VIDEO! See all the dual credit courses we offer.
Accepted Credit: As a high school, we can accept college credit as high school credit. A prime example is through Youth Options. These courses are not noted in GPA, but are worth more high school credit. Use the scale below to visualize the college to high school credit ratio.
2.0 College Credits = .75 High School credit
3.0 College Credits = 1.0 High School credit
4.0 College Credit = 1.25 High School credit
