Credit by Demonstrated Mastery

 

 
*Please pay close attention to deadlines.  No late or early applications will be accepted.  Applications will be accepted in the main office of MPMS.  Please make sure the application is in a sealed envelope with CDM and Full Student Name and ID Number written on the outside of the envelope.  
 
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.
 
First Day of Application Submission: November 13, 2019
Application Deadline (must be submitted at your child's school): December 13, 2019
 
Phase I Testing Window: February 2020
