Credit Recovery Academy: Grades 7-12

The Credit Recovery Academy provides an opportunity for students to recover one high school course credit. Students may not take these courses for new course credit. Students are eligible to enroll in a Credit Recovery Academy course if they have previously received a grade of F. However, students who have passed Algebra 1 may take the Credit Recovery Academy course to improve their understanding and skills before the next school year. No additional course credit will be awarded to these students. Transportation information will be communicated to families prior to the start of the program.
