Credit by Demonstrated Mastery

    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.
    If you are interested in the CDM option for your child, plan to attend one of the following Regional Information Sessions:
    • November 14 at Enloe High School from 6 PM – 7:30 PM
    • November 15 at Panther Creek High School from 6 PM – 7:30 PM
    • November 17 at Knightdale High School from 6 PM – 7:30 PM
    Application Deadline (must be submitted at your child's school): December 14, 2016
    Phase I Testing Window: February 15-28, 2017
