GPA Calculations

Students who retake failed classes at LCS or LISD summer school will receive that credit and the new grade will be recorded on the transcript and used to calculate GPA. The failing grade will remain on the transcript but not count toward the GPA. In some instances, students may receive credit through a credit-by-exam (CBE) through TTU for failed classes. The CBE grade will be on the transcript but is not used in calculating GPAs.

Students are allowed two credits from summer school and/or LISD online classes, and two credits from correspondence courses to count toward graduation requirements. Credit from CBEs are counted as correspondence credits. Students electing to take summer school (LISD online) or correspondence courses for advancement must get prior approval from the principal or counselor.

All 9th through 11th grade students must be enrolled in 7 classes (not including athletics).

What is the difference between the ACT and SAT?

The ACT is an achievement test, measuring what a student has learned in school. The SAT is more of an aptitude test, testing reasoning and verbal abilities.

The ACT has up to 5 components: English, Mathematics, Reading, Science, and an optional Writing Test. The SAT has only 3 components: Critical Reasoning, Mathematics, and a required Writing Test.

The College Board introduced a new version of the SAT in 2005, with a mandatory writing test. ACT continues to offer its well-established test, plus an optional writing test. You take the ACT Writing Test only if required by the college(s) you’re applying to.

The SAT has a correction for guessing. That is, they take off for wrong answers. The ACT is scored based on the number of correct answers with no penalty for guessing.

The ACT has an Interest Inventory that allows students to evaluate their interests in various career options.
