Counseling Department Services

Each counselor works with students in grades 9 through 12 and is responsible for a specific range of the alphabet. The alphabet breakdown and counselor contact information can be found on the McEachern web page (www.mceachernhigh.org).

In order to be most effective, school counselors see each student on an appointment basis. Students can make appointments by visiting the School Counseling office located in the Business Technology Building.

GPA Calculation Help

There are many ways you may need to calculate your GPA.  Your McEachern/Cobb County transcript shows your overall weighted GPA, but oftentimes, colleges use different formulas than McEachern does for calculating a student’s GPA for admission purposes. You may need to e-mail or contact the admission office of the colleges you are considering to find out exactly how they determine the GPA for admission to their college. 

The HOPE Scholarship definitely uses a different GPA calculation than McEachern/Cobb County GPA on your transcript to determine a students eligibility for the HOPE Scholarship www.gacollege411.org has a link to your HOPE GPA Calculation. You will need to log in to your gacollege411 account to access it. See your counseling office if you need help logging in.

The attachment below will describe in detail how to calculate your Core weighted and non-weighted GPA so you have the information you need when it comes to college admissions. The Excel spread sheet below will help you calculate your core GPA with or without weighting by just plugging in the number of A’s, B’s, C’s etc. and any bonus quality points taken for honors and AP courses (if applicable).
