Grade Point Average (GPA)

La Salle uses the following method for determining GPA and Grade Indication:

Unweighted GPA Scale: Grade Indication

90%-100% = 4.00 79% = 2.50 A = 90 – 100% indicates outstanding work

89% = 3.86 78% = 2.38 B = 83 – 89% indicates above average work.

88% = 3.71 77% = 2.25 C = 75 – 82% indicates average work

87% = 3.57 76% = 2.13 D = 70 – 74% indicates below average and

86% = 3.43 75% = 2.00 unsatisfactory academic work.

85% = 3.29 74% = 1.80 F= <70% is considered a failing grade and

84% = 3.14 73% = 1.60 indicates that the student does less work

83% = 3.00 72% = 1.40 than the minimum required in class

82% = 2.88 71% = 1.20

81% = 2.75 70% = 1.00

80% = 2.63 ≤69% = 0.00

Weighted GPA Scale:

For weighted GPA calculations, College Board AP and College Credit Plus courses are based on a 5.0 scale; Honors courses are based on a 4.5 scale; and all other courses with numerical grades are based on the 4.0 scale.
