The most common high school grading scale in the United States is the 10-pt scale versus the six-point scale used at Trinity Episcopal School. Multiple schools and our competitors (ie Collegiate, Chesterfield & Henrico) have recently made the change to a 10-point scale leaving Trinity students at a significant disadvantage. Ten for Titans seeks to petition the administration to change to a ten-point scale:

  • In place for the graduating class of 2018
  • Retroactive re-scoring of all student transcripts
  • Maintain the adder system for Honors, AP & IB classes


  • GPA is a key filtering determinate in the college application process and lower GPA's impact a candidate's access to more selective colleges, honors programs and scholarship money.
  • Many students are steered away from Honors, AP and IB classwork as the 6-point scale deters their ability to 'follow their path' when a single C can sink a college application.
  • There are many schools who 'know Trinity' especially commonly attended in-state universities, however due to high application rates and the uniqueness of our scale there are many more that just accept transcript GPA's without rescaling. A "B" is a "B" whether it was an 85% or a 92%
  • Trinity students must perform 20% better than their competitors on a ten-point scale to achieve the same GPA outcome.

Please support this effort on behalf of your student and be heard by Trinity administration to enact a change in our school's grading scale.
