...earn additional credits to get ahead?

Posted by:


The first question you need to ask yourself when considering getting ahead in credits is: Why? {What's the purpose for getting ahead?}


If the answer to that question is to graduate early, then you need to be prepared to work extra hard both in school and after school. That's because you will need to earn anywhere from 3.5 to 7 extra credits in order to graduate early. Those extra credits will have to be earned either through summer school or during your free time (after school and weekends). All work will be completed on your own and on a computer. In addition to giving up your free time, you will need to be prepared to pay for the additional credits you want to earn. If this sounds like a good and reasonable plan for your situation, then it's time to see your counselor. Stop by soon!

If the answer to that question is so you can have off periods during your senior year, then there's an easier way to reach that goal: pass all your classes during the school year. It's that simple! Just by doing the work you are already doing, you will earn off periods! Pretty cool, right?


Have another answer to that question? Set up a meeting with your counselor to discuss your options.
