gpa ranking gpa scale has changed beginning with the class of 2014

Course grades are based on + / - scale.

We will be using the following scale to compute GPA’s.

AP Courses are weighted 1 point for grades C- or above.


College Options

1. Post-Secondary Educational Options (PSEO)

PSEOP allows Ohio high school students to earn college credit and high school credit through completion of college courses. Students must meet the state and university requirements. Students travel to the university to take these courses. Students do not have to pay college tuition for these courses.

2. Concurrent Enrollment

Students attend a university and can earn college and high school credit at the same time. Parents and students absorb this cost. Universities that do not participate in PSEO offer this option.


College Options

3. Dual Enrollment

Students take these classes at Hayes High School in their regular schedules, taught by Hayes High School teachers. Students pay reduced tuition fees and can receive both high school and a college credit at the end of the course.

Look in the Course Handbook or refer to the course selection sheet.

4. Advanced Placement (AP)

The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is offered to high school students through The College Board and provides a resource for students to earn collegiate credit before enrolling at a university. Advanced Placement (AP) courses are offered at Hayes High School. Students must apply for these courses. These courses also have additional fees and a culminating test in May. Students who take AP courses stand out in the admissions process. High test scores can result in college credit. See the course guide for available courses. Beginning with the Class of 2014 a student must earn a C- or better to earn the additional point for weighted grading.
