Students may earn high school credits (and in some cases college credits) in the following alternative ways:
Courses designated in the Course Code Directory as high school level courses that are taken during middle school may be used to satisfy high school graduation requirements.
Passing scores on statewide, standardized assessments (EOC Assessments) earn high school credits for certain courses. Students do not have to enroll in or complete the corresponding course.
Industry Certifications that lead to college credit may substitute for up to two mathematics credits (except for Algebra I and Geometry), and up to one science credit (except for Biology I). An identified rigorous Computer Science course with a related industry certification may substitute for up to one science credit (except for Biology I).
Dual Enrollment and Early Admissions Programs
The Dual Enrollment and Early Admissions programs allow eligible high school students to enroll in postsecondary courses. Students can earn both high school credit and credit toward a college degree or technical certificate.
Advanced Placement Program (AP)
An AP course is a college-level learning experience designed for high school students. The College Board’s AP Program consists of over 30 college-level courses and exams. Students who earn a qualifying grade on an AP exam can earn high school credit and possibly college credit, depending on the college or university. Also see Advanced Placement (AP) Courses with FLVS.
