Credit Demonstrated by Mastery

Students may earn high school credit for specified courses without spending a set number of hours taking the course in a classroom. Under the state’s Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM) option, uniquely qualified students may “test out” or bypass a course if they have already mastered the content.


The program provides another opportunity for students to learn new content, to challenge themselves with the next level of rigor in a subject, and even graduate early. This option is not designed to replace existing accelerated pathways, such as the Academically/Intellectually Gifted (AIG) program at WCPSS.


If you are interested in the CDM option for your child, plan to attend one of the following Regional Information Sessions:

    • November 16 at Enloe High School from 6 PM – 7:30 PM
    • November 17 at Green Hope High School from 6 PM – 7:30 PM
    • November 19 at Leesville Road High School from 6 PM – 7:30 PM
    • November 30 at Knightdale High School from 6 PM – 7:30 PM
