I am looking for a program that I can use to keep track of and calculate my grade in all my classes without going through and making a spreadsheet for each class.

If you're teaching CS, you could have your students write one as an assignment and use the best one. – Kevin Nov 11 '12 at 4:20
not as a teacher as a student – Joe Nov 11 '12 at 4:28
Could you be more specific? What's the big deal about spreadsheet? Writing the average formula? – peterph Nov 14 '12 at 10:35

If your school doesn't use any gradebook system you should consider it :)

Google found several linux projects like GradeL, GNota, etc. Try them. Imho "that works on gentoo" is not relevant while you can build almost everything from sources on GNU/linux and especially on Gentoo.

Probably you should consider some platform-independent web application too (google it). You can access your data from another computers (public, friend's), that's a big benefit.

I know you don't want a spreadsheets, but if I were you, I'll create one google docs spreadsheet with couple of sheet tabs.
