Smart Horizons Career Online Education (SHCOE), the world’s first AdvancED/SACS accredited online school district, has announced the launch of new summer school credit recovery program for high school students. Courses offered through this initiative will take the process of credit recovery to a new level of convenience and efficiency for students across the country.
As budgetary considerations cause school districts to cut back on summer school classes, a growing number of U.S. high school students are turning to online courses that allow them a second chance to pass courses they need to graduate, thereby “recovering” those essential credits. With its comprehensive, fully-accredited online instructional programs, SHCOE offers the perfect solution to “fill in the gaps” left by decreasing opportunities in traditional school settings.
“SHCOE has established itself as a leader in the field of online education at the secondary level,” said Wendy Kauffman, Chief Operating Officer for SHCOE, “and we are very pleased to bring this innovative online product to current high school students as an affordable option for credit recovery. Our credit recovery program will allow students all the convenience and flexibility they need, and they can still work and travel. This is also good opportunity for students who want to take a course to improve their GPA, accelerate their studies, or prepare for courses they will take in the coming school year.”
The cost to parents and students for a half-credit course is $199, and for a one-credit course is $399. For more information on the credit recovery program, visit www.smartsummerschool.com or call our offices at 1-855-777-4263.
