Determining Class Rank

Juniors and seniors are ranked by numeric average each year because colleges request this information when the student applies for acceptance. This average is computed by the school at three different times.

  1. It is computed at the end of the junior year and the beginning of the senior year, since many colleges request this information early.
  2. It is again compiled at the end of the first semester of the senior year.
  3. Class rank is not finalized until all work is completed and graded for the year.
  4. Grades earned in Honors and AP courses receive a higher numeric weight in calculations of class rank.
  5. When a student retakes a course due to a failing grade, the failing average will be a part of the GPA as well as the average earned for the repeated course.
