Often, a single course credit can mean staying behind or graduating. “Credit recovery” is a wide variety of educational strategies and programs that Capital City School (CCS) offers for select high school students. It provides the opportunity for students who have failed a class or fell behind to earn the credit required. This is accomplished either by rebuilding the coursework or through equivalent alternative methods.
A few of the approaches that Capital City School crafts for students in order for them to recover their credits are: a) online courses through various websites, software, and applications; b) enrolling with two teachers at the same time; c) completing extra coursework; or c) a combination of two or all approaches.
This strategy reinforces students’ learning experience while putting them back on track towards graduation. Graduation rates at Capital City School have increased significantly with the credit recovery program. CCS constructs individualized academic plans with corresponding expectations without compromising standards. This way, we can maintain the quality of education. In addition, we closely evaluate the students’ mastery and progress before giving out credit. We monitor what every individual student needs to focus on and review further. Our faculty and staff maintain critical guidance in order to produce results and provide a chance for our students to earn their diplomas. We track credit accumulation as we project our students’ on-time graduation.
Certain high school courses are required by colleges such as the University of California (UC) and the California State University (CSU). These courses are called “A-G” courses for the letter assigned for each subject area.
