Tipton-Rosemark Academy

Bound for College.  Prepared for Life.



Tipton-Rosemark Academy was founded upon the principles that effective education comes from the combined efforts of parents, teachers, and students working together in a highly motivated Christian learning environment. We believe that education is the single most important investment parents can make to insure the future success of their children as they prepare for the world of the 21st century. Our curriculum embraces not only academic achievement but also the moral, aesthetic, and character development of our students.

The program of studies is college preparatory with multiple level courses designed to provide flexibility for individual differences and abilities for students in grades 9-12. Tipton-Rosemark Academy provides a challenging academic program as well as a strong spiritual program.

TRA utilizes a letter system of grades ranging from A to F. For the purpose of computing grade point averages, quality points are assigned to letter grades as follows:

Grade Percentage Range Quality Points Assigned* Weighting for Honors Courses* Weighting for Advanced Placement Courses* Dual Enrollment
A 93-100% A=4 Honors classes receive 1.05 (5%) weighting to the numeric average. AP classes receive 1.10 (10%) weighting to the numeric average. Dual Enrollment classes receive 1.15 (10%) weighting to the numeric average.
B 85-92% B=3
C 75-84% C=2
D 70-74% D=1
F Below 70 F=0

*Denotes information that pertains to high school classes only
*No weighted credit will be awarded to numeric averages 70 or below in Honors or AP courses.
*We do not weight quality points.
