Internal Grade Weighting to Begin in 2012-2013 Academic Year
St. Augustine Prep will be developing a new process of assigning weight to the more rigorous courses (honors and Advanced Placement) to take effect starting next academic year (2012-2013). This is only for internal review. Most colleges and universities do not want to see weighted grades, which is why the Prep moved away from them a few years ago.
The result of this process will only be used by the Administration in internal review of student achievement which may include National Honor Society candidates, scholarship recipients, etc. It will not affect the un-weighted GPA reflected on a student’s transcript. As course registration for the 2012-13 academic year continues, please keep this new process in mind when selecting courses.
If you have any questions about this process, please contact the Dean of Academics, Mr. Kevin Burke at Mr.Burke@Hermits.com.
