Stetson Academy

Grading Policies

Grading Terms

Stetson Academy operates on a trimester-based academic calendar. Each academic year consists of three reporting periods, and parents will receive a total of three report cards as well as three interim progress reports. Parent-Teacher conferences are customarily scheduled twice annually: following the issuance of the first progress report and at the conclusion of the second trimester.

Common Core

Stetson Academy uses common-core to provide a standard benchmark for student progress. A snapshot of current progress toward completing these standards is accompanied on all report cards for grades TK-6th. For more information on why we use common core, visit our Common Core Policies page.

Letter Grades

Starting in second grade, students will receive letter grades on their report cards. Letter grades are determined by calculating the percentage of points earned for each subject. Points earned for each assignment or assessment are not subject to 'weighting.' For example, 1 point earned on a homework assignment is equivalent to 1 point earned on a test.

PE & Electives

Starting in first grade, Physical Education and Elective grades (if applicable) are given as 'effort grades.' They utilize the (U)nsatisfactory, (S)atisfactory, and (O)utstanding grading system.
