• Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM)

    Uniquely qualified 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.  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. 
    Application Window for consideration of CDM in the 2020-2021 school year is closed.
    Phase I Testing Window: February 17-28, 2020
