"Credit Recovery" for High School Students


Overview and contact information for high school students interested in "Credit Recovery"


Credit recovery is a public-school program. The NCVPS Credit Recovery program is designed for students who have recently failed one of the following 12 courses and need to recover the credit for the course:

  • Algebra I
  • Algebra II
  • Biology
  • Civics and Economics
  • English I
  • English II
  • English III
  • English IV
  • Geometry
  • Physical Science

As described by the North Carolina State Board of Education, as of the Fall of 2011, all courses taken as credit recovery, despite the program, can only receive a final designation of PASS or FAIL. This program is part of the Virtual Public School program. 

More general information about the program can be found at https://ncvps.org/catalogue.

To Register

To participate in Credit Recovery, you'll need to sign up through your high school counselor. Although some of the Credit Recovery classes take place at A-B Tech in the Birch Building, the program is not affiliated with A-B Tech.
