Grades & Transcripts

Students and parents can view grades, unofficial transcripts and graduation status through the Aeries portal at any time. No report cards are mailed. Please review the SDUHSD Add/Drop and Grade Reporting Guidelines & Dates.

Only the CCA Registrar can post credits and grades to the transcript.  For information about ordering official transcripts, please visit the CCA Registrar's page.

Year-long classes are taken in one term on the 4x4 schedule.  Each quarter grade is the equivalent of earning a fall semester or a spring semester grade in a traditional school year.  For more information, see the 4x4 Schedule Presentation.
For high school graduation requirements, students earn credit for D grades or higher. To meet college admission requirements, students must earn a C grade or higher. For D or F grades, if a student repeats the same course, the higher grade will replace the lower grade in the GPA calculation although both courses and grades remain on the transcript. WIthdraw/W's are not factored into the GPA calculation.
There are three types of GPA on the CCA transcript:
  • Total GPA 9-12: Includes every course taken in grades 9-12.
  • Acad. GPA 9-12: Includes all courses taken in 9-12, except PE and courses graded with a Pass/Fail such as TA and Conservatory.
  • Acad. GPA 10-12: Includes all courses taken in 10 -12, except PE and courses graded with a Pass/Fail such as TA and Conservatory.
For more information, see the Transcript Tutorial PresentationAP exam and college entrance exam scores are not posted on the SDUHSD transcript and must be ordered from College Board or ACT.

It is the SDUHSD policy not to rank students. A GPA distribution is located on the School Profile.
*Please note each college determines its own GPA calculation formula for admission.  Check college admission websites for specific information provided directly by the college.
