Credit by Demonstrated Mastery

The Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM) process provides uniquely qualified students who possess mastery knowledge of content the ability to progress and advance in coursework when they are ready, without the traditional barrier of seat time. A student who is able to demonstrate a deep understanding of the knowledge, skills, and understandings of a particular course will earn credit for that course, thereby ensuring that every student has the opportunity for the most rigorous and appropriate course of study based on academic progress and need. Families interested in pursuing CDM should contact their school counselor or the Secondary Curriculum Director.
