High School Grading Scale

While our online high school differs from traditional classrooms, you'll find that our grading scale is designed with a similar goal in mind: to help you prepare for the next phase of your life. At the end of each lesson, you take an exam online through our website. As soon as you pass your exam, you go on to the next lesson and continue moving forward with your studies.

Your examinations and projects will be graded on the following scale:

Lesson Grade (%) Letter Equivalent Rating
90-100 A Excellent
80-89 B Good
70-79 C Average
65-69 D Passing
Below 65 F Failing

An overall course grade of 65% or above in each subject, and successful completion of 21.5 credits are required to earn your High School Diploma.
