Not much. Your high school GPA is very important, but your freshman year is probably the least important. If your grades were bad that year, but improved, write a separate note to the school explaining why that happened and why that means they should accept you Most colleges won't even look at freshman year, but if you were falling behind and made a significant improvement they will like that. I've heard that nowadays, more than ever. Stanford has actually started paying attention to 7th grade grades. Soooo yea. But not all colleges have started doing this, nor will they anytime soon. But just remember... The two answers above are incorrect in most circumstances. There are a few schools that ignore 9th grade grades, but only a few. The rest look at cumulative performance beginning in high school. A rising trend helps, but will not completely offset a bad, 9th grade performance.

How much do your grades from freshman year in high school affect your chances of getting into a good college?

If you get good grades in the last 3 years, not that much at all. First, different colleges have different requirements. Many are relying less on grades and more on SATs, outside activities, etc. Second, a college will look at your overall GPA first. If your GPA is low for a particular college, they will often take into account the fact that you had some problems in freshman year but worked up to your potential in subsequent years. This might be an issue you'll want to address in your entrance essay. Though while freshman year grades are probably the least important, you still want to get good grades in the right classes. You really don't want to fail a class and then have to take it over the next year. That is a waste of a class hour where you could have taken something else. Answer Not much, especially if your grades consitently improve thorough out high school.

If you didn't well during your freshman and sophomore years but received a 90 or above average your junior year will any good colleges even look at me?

Does your high school GPA include all four years or is it from freshman year to junior year?

Your overall high school GPA will include all of your years at high school. However, when applying to colleges, different rules apply. Obviously, the standards of all colleges are different, however, most are the same. Most colleges only look at your GPA from sophomore year and junior year. Freshman year is glanced at, but not given much importance to, and senior year doesn't matter much because by the time you're a senior, you'll already have been accepted into a college or rejected by it. However, that does not mean the senior year is unimportant. If the colleges see a sudden change in your grades...for whatever reason...slacking, "senior-itis", they can still kick you out before you even enter. The GPA necessary for attending varies with each college. However, in most places, colleges do not look at the grades you receive for physical education (PE). That part is normally left out of your GPA for colleges. Yet to answer the main question, when you graduate from high school...your overall GPA is determined by all four years of your school...the GPA that is on your transcript.
