Taking AP or Honors courses can boost a GPA. Read my blog post on this topic and watch my video on it, too. Repeating courses can boost a GPA, but the most important thing is to get the best grades you can.
You can only get a 4.0 if you start out with one as a freshman and keep it, but you do not need a 4.0 to be accepted to the vast majority of excellent colleges, so please don’t idealize something that is not really necessary at all! 🙂
