The Facility

The Credit Recovery Center is especially designed to provide a flexible, self-paced learning environment for students. It enables students to recover credits in core subject areas and to earn the credits necessary to graduate on schedule. By keeping class sizes small and providing students with individualized counseling and one-on-one teacher support, students who have dropped out of school or are at-risk of dropping out of school are provided with a new opportunity to earn their high school diplomas.

Instructional Methods

The Credit Recovery Center provides a variety of instructional methods - individualized instruction packets, technology and individual teacher instruction. All of these methods are especially designed to help students recover lost credits. Students enrolled at the Credit Recovery Center use computer software to complete courses and recover lost credits more quickly than with traditional instructional methods. Teachers provide students with small group instruction to prepare for the state assessments that are required for high school graduation.
