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 Credit by Demonstrated Mastery is now open (as of November 3, 2020) and will close on Monday, December 14, 2020. All students who are interested in completing the CDM process for a course must complete and submit the CDM Family and Student Application and Agreement to Mr. Carrington by 2:30 pm on December 14, 2020 (late applications will not be accepted). Submissions can be made electronically via email or physical forms can be dropped off in the main office. If dropping off in person, please place paperwork in an envelope and address to Mr. Carrington. See the links below for more details regarding the CDM process and the application itself. If you have any questions about CDM at Green Level HS, please contact Mr. Carrington at
