My High School HOPE GPA

Your Georgia high school HOPE GPA starts calculating as soon as you begin 9th grade. Unlike your overall high school GPA, your HOPE GPA only includes your core curriculum courses:

  • English
  • Math
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Foreign Language

You can begin checking your HOPE GPA through your My GAfutures account starting in the 10th grade.* Don’t have an account? It’s quick and easy to create one!

Your My High School HOPE GPA page includes your student information, your HOPE GPA as calculated by GSFC based on transcripts sent by your Georgia high school, rigor credits, ACT/SAT scores if you’ve taken them, and more information about the eligibility requirements of the HOPE and Zell Miller Scholarships.

*High schools must provide transcript data to GSFC in order for a student’s HOPE GPA to be available through their GAfutures account.
