Do classes I took in middle school count towards my high school GPA for college apps?

Hey guys, quick question. I took some high school-level classes in middle school, like Algebra and a foreign language. Do these count towards my high school GPA for college admissions?

Greetings! When it comes to high school-level classes taken in middle school, such as Algebra and foreign language courses, the policies for how they impact your high school GPA can vary by school district. Typically, if these courses are included on your high school transcript and are factored into your GPA by your high school, then yes, they'll be counted by colleges when they review your application. However, if these classes are not represented on your high school transcript, they are not usually calculated into your GPA for college admissions purposes. It's essential to check with your high school administration to see how they handle these courses. Remember, while GPA is important, colleges will also look at the rigor of your courses throughout all four years of high school. If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to reach out to your counselor for specific guidance related to your circumstances.
