Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM)

  • Students may earn high school credit for specified courses under the state’s Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM) option; uniquely qualified students may “test out” or bypass a course if they have already mastered the content. The program provides another opportunity for students to learn new content, to challenge themselves with the next level of rigor in a subject, and even graduate early. This option is not designed to replace existing accelerated pathways, such as the Academically and Intellectually Gifted (AIG) program at WCPSS.

    The 2022-2023 CDM window has closed.
