High School Honors Courses

High school honors courses are offered in a 4.5 GPA scale instead of the standard 4.0 GPA scale. This ensures that student GPAs accurately reflect the difficulty of courses taken. To calculate the GPA of letter grades in high school honors courses, simply add 0.5 to the GPA value.



Parents and students may access transcripts through Student Information Services. Students click on My Transcript. Parents click on My Students, then the name of the student, then Transcript.

View or print this page for an unofficial transcript, or click on Order Official Transcript to have one mailed, emailed or faxed to you or a specified recipient. Transcripts are $5 per copy. We respond to requests for transcripts and other records within 3 business days.


Transfer Credit

Students may transfer credit into Williamsburg Academy that can count towards graduation. We evaluate credit transferred in from other schools according to the following guidelines:

  • The credit must be earned in a regionally accredited school for grades 9-12
  • The transfer credit must meet the academic standards of Williamsburg
  • The transfer credit will be evaluated as to whether or not it satisfies one of Williamsburg’s graduation requirements. If not, it will be listed as an elective credit
  • Transcripts from other schools should be sent to the Registrar’s office via email, fax, or postal mail
