Numerical grades are rounded to the units place (e.g. 79.6 = 80). Traditional grading is used:
|90 - 100
|80 - 89
|70 - 79
|60 - 69
Pluses and minuses are used but they have no GPA value (e.g. B-, B, B+ = 3.0)
Incompletes are only given if a teacher agrees. An incomplete will carry no value and is treated as an F for the sake of calculating grade point averages (GPA). The incomplete will stand for two weeks to allow a student to finish the required work. If the work is not completed in that time the grade will be changed--averaging in all work turned in and not turned in.
Promotion requirements are as follows
- All students in grades 1-8 must have an overall 1.0 GPA in all subjects averaged over the entire year to be promoted to the next grade.
- Middle school students (6-8) must also have a 1.0 GPA in English and math combined averaged over the entire year to be promoted.
- The 8th grade graduation ceremony is also only open to students who have at least a 2.0 in Bible in the 8th grade. Students who have a Bible GPA below 2.0 may be promoted but will not be allowed to participate in the ceremony.
There are other special restrictions and the parent must consult the Parent/Student manual.
