Choosing Credit Recovery Classes

Accredited programs exist on the state as well as national level, through individual schools or via online learning. When choosing a program, it's important to consider how you will best learn the course material in order to successfully pass the course and gain the needed credit. All credit recovery classes are geared to go over the material very thoroughly, but some programs may fit your needs better than others. Below are the formats of credit recovery classes, as well as a few examples you can look into.

Online Credit Recovery Classes

Several credit recovery classes for 6th-12th graders are offered purely online. Lessons and criteria are delivered to students via learning software on the computer, making this option of class very mobile and accessible! The online classes are the most self-paced of the class options. While dates of completion may apply, the online class gives you the chance to go over any section of the course at your own convenience. Some online educators offering course recovery programs include The Keystone School, National High School, and, of course, Study.com.

Study.com's credit recovery courses are all online and fully accredited. These courses provide you with video lessons, practice quizzes, and detailed transcripts that will outline the material in an easily accessible format. We also have instructors you can reach out to remotely with any questions you may have. Below, you will find our course offerings for credit recovery:

In-Person Credit Recovery Classes

In-person credit recovery classes are done in the conventional classroom setting. Most often these classes are set in the summer when both students and teachers have the flexibility to meet outside of a regular school semester. If you feel you respond better to a teacher physically going over the course, or would like immediate guidance while learning, this may be the best option for you. These credit recovery classes are arranged by local state/county school systems and can be found by a simple internet search. Your regular school may also want you to enroll in a specific program, in which case you should seek guidance from your school administrators. Physical locations for these in-person classes can range from different middle and high schools to community colleges.

Blended Credit Recovery Courses

The blended credit recovery class combines elements from the previous formats, with both online aspects and in-person sessions. The amount of either online or in-person time varies on the particular program. These blended classes are state organized and are conducted in schools that are approved by state educational departments. Blended courses can be found by searching for credit recovery courses within your state or school district. Your location in the state, as well as your school district, will determine where the physical portion of the course will be held.
