Grand Traverse Academy 2018-19 Secondary School Course Catalog 6 Secondary School Grading Scales When averaging two quarter grades, if the average falls in between two grades, the grade will be rounded up to the next grade if the average is above a 2.0. Anything below a 2.0 will be rounded to the nearest grade. Any final grade below a 2.0 (whether it is a semester-long class or a year-long class) will not earn credit, and the class or an equivalent will need to be completed for graduation credit. *Advanced Placement (AP) courses are offered through the College Board (creators of the SAT test). AP provides students with the challenge of college-level work while still in high school, and gives them the opportunity to earn college credit and placement.
