Grading System

Grades are reported in percentages and no letter grades are given. Schools that need to convert to a 4.0 or letter grade system should use the scale that is implemented by the NCAA Clearinghouse, where 90-100 = A, 80-89 = B, etc. Grades below 67% are considered failing at St. James Academy. A bonus of 5 percentage points is awarded to the cumulative weighted GPA for any honors or AP course if the grade is above 77%. Transcripts are permanent records of all courses and semester grades earned Work from other institutions will be recorded and credit noted on transcripts.
