Use our handy GPA Calculator to calculate your high school GPA, record your semester grades and automatically track your cumulative academic performance.
Using the Calculator
Enter the name, grade (letter) and the number of credit hours (usually 1) for each of your classes, starting with your freshman year in high school. If you’re taking classes that are weighted (Honors, AP/IB or College) switch the ‘weighted’ toggle on to receive credit for their level of difficulty.
Add additional classes, semesters or academic years using the red buttons, and delete items utilizing the delete buttons (Xs) to the right. The calculator will save your GPA data automatically, and it will be waiting for you when you return.
How to Use the High School GPA Calculator
High school is a challenging time for most students. We hope that our intuitive GPA calculator can help lessen your load. In a couple of easy steps, you’ll be calculating your GPA for the semester, year or entire high school career! Shall we begin?
Follow the steps below to tabulate your high school GPA swiftly.
Enter the name of your class
First, you need to enter the name of your class (or an abbreviation).
Enter the grade you received in your class
Next, select the letter grade you received (use the dropdown). Only have a percentage? Check out this GPA scale to convert your grade.
Enter the number of credits the class is worth
Finally, enter the number of credits your class is worth, which is usually 1, but double check those Gym classes (sometimes they’re a half credit).
Factor in your classes weight (optional)
Each class is unweighted by default, but if you’re enrolled in an honors or AP course, select the correct weight from the dropdown.
Add an additional class (optional)
Hit the “add course” button to add an additional class in the current semester (useful if you’re taking a larger course load).
Add another semester (optional)
Add an additional semester with the “add semester” button. Keep adding semesters until you’ve got all your classes entered.
Unweighted or Weighted
High school GPAs are typically tabulated using one of two methods: weighted or unweighted (or a combination of both). Irrespective of which method is used, the basic formula remains the same:
(Total Grade Points) ÷ (Number of Classes) = GPA
If you’re enrolled in classes with honors or AP level curriculum, your cumulative grade points are probably going to be higher. Be careful, however, as many colleges may hold you to a higher standard if they see advanced coursework on your high school transcript. Knowing the difference between weighted and unweighted GPAs can be complicated, but you will get the hang of it.
