Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM)

  • Students may earn high school credit for specified courses without spending a set number of hours taking the course in a classroom. 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 application window for CDM for the 2022-23 school year will open in November 2022. Questions regarding CDM processes at Green Level HS can be directed to Ms. Clark at amclark@wcpss.net.
