The Academy uses an A-F letter grading system, with the option of “plus” or “minus” grades to indicate students’ performance slightly above or slightly below a letter category.  For example, a “C+” indicates a slightly above average performance, though not to the level of a “B”, while a “C- “indicates that the performance was on the weak side of average, though still above a “D”.  Please note that pluses and minuses do affect the student’s grade point average.
