    Hi, Lisa. There are many ways to calculate a GPA. Here is one typical way: 90-100 percent is an A and is worth four points. 80-89 percent is a B and is worth three points. 70-79 percent is a C and is worth two points. 60-69 percent is a D and is worth four points.

    For an overall GPA (all subjects included), assign the appropriate number of points for each subject. For example, if your student received an A in language arts (4 points), a B in math (3 points), a C in science (2 points) and a C in social studies (2 points), add together 4 plus 3 plus 2 plus 2 for a total of 11 points.

    Then, divide the number of points (11) by the number of subjects (4) to get the GPA. Since these are usually reported as a decimal, it's easier for we math-challenged parents to do that in Google or with a calculator. 11 divided by 4 is a 2.75 GPA.

    Hope this helps!

    Mom of six . . . current students and homeschool graduates. Enjoying using Time4Learning since 2006!

    Each school has a different method for translating from percentage and letter grades into a grade point average on a 4.0 scale.

    Typically, 90% to 100% is considered an A, 80% to 89% a B and 70% to 79% a C. Modifications to a letter grade, such as + and -, correspond to the top and bottom 3 percentage points within each letter grade scale.
