Credit Recovery Course Descriptions

  • Credit Recovery courses are fast-paced, abbreviated versions of standard courses taught during the school year. They are designed for students who want to replace a failing grade or need to repeat a required core academic course. These courses are not intended to be taken for initial credit. Students may not take courses in this category if they do not already have a transcripted grade for the course.  

    When a student registers for a Credit Recovery course, the system will check to verify that the course registered for has been taken and failed previously. If the course is not found on the student’s transcript, the system will pause and present a message indicating that before proceeding with registration, approval must be granted by the student’s counselor. 

    All NCAA-registered students should see their counselor before registering for any Credit Recovery courses.

    Courses in this category include:

    • Written & Oral Communication/English 9
    • World Literature and Composition/English 10
    • American Literature & Composition/English 11
    • Senior English (online only)
    • Algebra
    • Intermediate Algebra
    • Algebra II
    • Geometry
    • Biology
    • Chemistry
    • Physics
    • Human Geography
    • World History
    • US History
    • Civics
    • Health

    Upon successful completion of the summer course, the student’s original grade is replaced with an “RE” (repeat) designation and the new course and grade are recorded on the student’s transcript. For more information about repeating a course, see the Policies and Procedures section of the brochure. 

    Credit Recovery courses may be offered in-person and/or online.
