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.

    Applications for Credit by Demonstrated Mastery will be accepted between November 13 - December 13, 2019. 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 jcarrington@wcpss.net.
