    A = 92.50 B- = 79.50 D+ = 66.50
    A- = 89.50 C+ = 76.50 D = 62.50
    B+ = 86.50 C = 72.50 D- = 59.50
    B = 82.50 C- = 69.50 F = 0.00

    Unweighted GPA

    A = 4.0
    A- = 3.7
    B+ = 3.3
    B = 3.0
    B- = 2.7
    C+ =2.3
    C = 2.0
    C- = 1.7
    D+ = 1.3
    D = 1.0
    D- = 0.7
    F = 0.0

    For the letter grade conversions, the numbers indicated are the cutoff marks for each letter grade. For example, a grade of B is anywhere from 82.5 to 86.49. If you have an 86.5, you have a B+... etc. I go to school in Andover, MA and this is how my school does it. Any questions, just let me know.

    The simplified version that my school and probably a majority of others use...

    A(90-110)=4.0
    B(80-89)=3.0
    C(79-74)=2.0
    D(73-70)=1.0
    F(69-0)=0.0

    Actually when my DS went through this with the academy their conversion was a bit different then the norm. His school was a 100 pt scale so they said for both SS and PCQ divide his 100 pt by 25. So if you are on a 100 pt scale take your current GPA (ex: 85) and divide by 25 (which in this example converts to 3.4) to convert to the 4.0 scale. I would highly recommend calling the academy and asking if your scale is different then 100pt or 4.0 scales. You want to make sure it is accurate and does not negatively affect you at least initially. They will convert when they receive your transcript from high school anyway which has more to it in weighting such as type of class etc.

    As you can see, this is not a question that anyone here can answer for you. (Not unless you're asking what the academy grading system is). For all high schools, they are totally individual. They can have their own cutoff. That is one reason the academy requests that the school counselor sends them a copy of your school's profile. So they can see what an "A" is. See if you "Weight" your gpa. See if you have "Half Grades" like A- or B+. mike....
