Weighted GPA

Current students in the Class of 2024, 2025, and 2026, will be granted a weighted GPA based on certain coursework completed throughout high school. This weighted GPA will only be provided to colleges and universities to assist in scholarship/admission consideration. All Liberty Public School academic honors/awards will continue to be based on a student's unweighted GPA. For a list of courses that will earn additional GPA points towards a weighted GPA click HERE
