4.0 GPA Colleges

An unweighted 4.0 GPA means a student earned all A's (or close to all A's) their high school classes. A grade point average of 4.0 is the best unweighted grade point average a student can get! If you have a 4.0 GPA, you earned higher grades in high school than the vast majority of students.

The best colleges in the country accept students with 4.0 GPAs, including ivy leagues like Harvard and Yale and the group of prestigious liberal arts sometimes called the "Little Ivies," which include Williams and Amherst.

Other top colleges that admit students with an average GPA of 4.0 include Kenyon in Ohio, UNC Chapel Hill in North Carolina, and Clemson in South Carolina.

Remember, GPA is only one of the things that colleges look at. Test scores, recommendations, essays and activities also play a role in determining which schools make sense to apply to.
