Credit Recovery and Test Prep Opportunities

Second Semester Credit Recovery Program

Credit Recovery Courses are available for high school students to retake a class previously taken but failed by the student. These credit recovery courses contain only the essential course content and can be completed in a very condensed time frame.  All credit recovery courses will be delivered online through CAOLA and are self-paced. Courses will be monitored by West Shore staff and available at no cost to families.

Please note, students may take no more than one credit through the Second Semester Credit Recovery program. During the summer of 2023, another opportunity will be available to take additional credits through a similar credit recovery program and a credit acceleration program.
