What is Credit Recovery?
Credit Recovery is a 12 week programme for any high school student, from grades 9-12, who have not passed or not passing a core subject at their grade level at the end of their school year or term/semester. Therefore, they need to retake their subject and achieve a passing grade. The student can use Credit Recovery to make up credits in courses previously failed, improve their grade point average, advance to the next grade, or reach graduation.
What are the subjects offered?
Core subjects include English, Math, Humanities, Science, Foreign Language (French and Spanish only).
Can any student register for Credit Recovery?
Yes, any student from any school, public or private, can register through PES and retake a subject.
How does PES assist?
PES trained teachers will ensure your student understands the material and will work one on one to help your child successfully pass the course. More than just passing, we want your child to retain the knowledge and be set up for success as they move forward in their academic journey.
Does my current school need to be notified that I am enrolling in the Credit Recovery Programme?
Yes. Before registering and paying for the cost, please seek approval from your child’s school to ensure they will accept the credits for your child completing and passing the course.
What should I show the school about the Credit Recovery so they know that this curriculum is legit?
The Credit Recovery progamme is issued via our partner, Forest Trail Academy (FTA). FTA is accredited by Cognia, Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools' Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS), and Accreditation International. Your child’s school can also contact PES for more information on the specific course objectives to determine credit acceptance.
When is the grade for my subject issued?
A numeric grade will be calculated and the student will be notified when their transcript is ready. A report will also be sent to officials at the student's school of record, who can assign a grade and award credit at their discretion.
