Credit by Demonstrated Mastery

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 Deadline (must be submitted to Ms. Gainey, ARMS AIG Teacher): December 13, 2019


Phase I Testing Window: February 17-28, 2020
