Other Ways to Earn High School Credits

Students may earn high school credits (and in some cases college credits) in the following alternative ways:

Middle School

Courses designated in the Course Code Directory as high school level courses that are taken during middle school may be used to satisfy high school graduation requirements.

Homeschool Portfolios

Credits documented through homeschool portfolios will not satisfy the general course requirements for a high school diploma but may satisfy the general course requirements for a Certificate of Completion. Coursework and grades must be documented thoroughly and completely. Please contact us for more information.

Accredited Homeschool Programs

Credits documented on transcripts by an accredited homeschool program will not satisfy the general course requirements for a high school diploma but may satisfy the general course requirements for a Certificate of Completion. Please contact us for more information.

End-of-Course Assessments

Passing scores on statewide, standardized end-of-course assessments (EOC Assessments) earn high school credits for certain courses. Students do not have to enroll in or complete the corresponding course.

MOOC Certificates

Earn high school credits for Verified Certificates and/or credits earned for successful completion of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC). You'll find courses offered by colleges and universities on Canvas, Coursera, edX, and other platforms. Many courses are free! Not all courses are eligible for high school credit. Please contact us for course approval.

Industry Certifications

Industry Certifications that lead to college credit may substitute for up to two mathematics credits (except for Algebra I and Geometry), and up to one science credit (except for Biology I). An identified rigorous Computer Science course with a related industry certification may substitute for up to one science credit (except for Biology I).

Dual Enrollment and Early Admissions Programs

The Dual Enrollment and Early Admissions programs allow eligible high school students to enroll in postsecondary courses. Students can earn both high school credit and credit toward a college degree or technical certificate.

Advanced Placement Program (AP)

An AP course is a college-level learning experience designed for high school students. The CollegeBoard's AP Program consists of over 30 college-level courses and exams. Students who earn a qualifying grade on an AP exam can earn high school credit and possibly college credit, depending on the college or university. Also see Advanced Placement (AP) Courses with FLVS.

College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
Passage of a CLEP exam can earn high school credit and possibly college credit for certain courses. Students do not have to enroll in or complete the corresponding course. Learn more about the CLEP at CollegeBoard.
