College Credit Opportunities





Advanced Placement

AP classes offer a challenging and stimulating educational experience for college bound students. When compared to other high school courses, AP classes often take more time, require more work, and give greater opportunity for individual growth and accomplishment. In May, AP exams are taken and scored on a 5-point scale. Most major colleges and universities recognize scores of 3, 4, or 5 for college credit. The amount of credit varies by institution. Students needing special accommodations must notify their teacher and the AP Coordinator upon enrollment in the course.

Why Take AP?
Dual Enrollment Madera Center

In the spring students enrolled in Medical Terminology will have the opportunity to take OT 10 and earn 3 college credits and 10 high school elective credits.

GPA Calculator





How to Calculate your GPA

To graduate from high school, students must maintain a minimum overall graduation grade point average or gpa of 2.0. To figure out a current semester GPA, assign the correct points to each grade. For example, if you received an “A” in a class, it equals 4 points, “B” equals 3 points, “C” equals 2 points, “D” equals 1 and “F” equals 0. Add the total grade points earned in all of the classes together, and divide by the total number of classes to get your GPA.

RangeClass PeriodCalculation
A = 41st PeriodA = 4
B = 32nd PeriodB = 3
C = 23rd PeriodA = 4
D = 14th PeriodC = 2
F = 05th PeriodD = 1
6th PeriodA = 4
± 18

18 divided by 6 = 3.0 GPA
