Credit Acceleration Courses

Credit Acceleration Course Offerings

Credit acceleration courses are available for high school students interested in taking a course for the first time for original course credit. These acceleration courses contain the full course content and require a greater time commitment from the student. Typical semester based (.50 credit) courses can be reasonably completed within the six-week summer school program. Yearlong (1.0 credit) acceleration courses will require a substantial time commitment from the student and may necessitate eight weeks for completion.  Only a limited selection of courses for acceleration are available online through CAOLA or Schoology, and these courses will be monitored by West Shore staff.
