    Summer 2019 Credit Recovery Registration


    Click here to register for a summer credit recovery course.

     The Downingtown Area School District is offering a credit recovery program that includes coursework for a previously-failed course. Recovery credit courses are reported on the official transcript and the grades are calculated into the student’s grade point average (GPA). 

    Our credit recovery courses are designed especially for high school students who did not pass a course initially but learned enough to make a complete repetition of the class unnecessary. Students can sometimes test out of the material they’ve mastered and focus on the concepts they missed the first time around. The online courses are crafted to keep students on task and moving forward, utilizing a “chunked” methodology to increase retention.

    Students will be in class working at their own pace to master the material and to earn course credit.  A PA-certified teacher will be monitoring the students in the class to answer questions, to review material individually, and to encourage the students in their progress.

    While attendance in class is not mandatory, it is highly recommended. In the summer of 2018, 100% of the credit recovery students with good attendance* passed the course!
