Credit Recovery Programs

Last Updated: 9/29/2020 12:48 PM

Credit Recovery Options allow students to make up previously failed courses. Credit recovery may not be taken for first-time credit. Seats are limited, and 12th-grade students have first priority.

Students and families should be advised that some post-secondary institutions and programs, including the NCAA Eligibility Center, do not accept courses taken via APEX credit recovery. To be certain of this, please contact the NCAA Eligibility Center or the post-secondary institutions that you are interested in applying to directly regarding their policy.


***Students must meet with their counselor to discuss these options and determine which option is the best fit for them.***


APEX courses= online credit recovery courses completed on WHS campus during the school day. *Available for Seniors only during the 2020-2021 school year. *NOT NCAA approved.
