The Credit Before Grade Nine program provides opportunities for junior high students to obtain high school credits through accelerated and enriched courses
Who can apply?
Credit Before Grade Nine Courses are available for those students who qualify. Qualifications are based upon completion of prerequisite courses, standardized testing scores, past academic performances, and teacher recommendation.
Credit Before Grade Nine courses are more rigorous than other junior high school offerings. These courses require the same demands they will face at the high school level.
• Students broaden their intellectual horizons by investigating deeper into the subject matter.
• Students have the opportunity to earn high school credit earlier, thus allowing them to take more Advanced Placement (AP) classes at the high school level.
• Students and parents see a significant savings in college tuition when taking AP classes at the high school
