Jeffco's 21st Century Virtual Academy offers credit recovery classes for high school students. Credit Recovery Classes are designed to meet graduation requirements, and are ideal for students who are working towards a high school diploma.
The courses available for credit recovery only include the core course graduation requirements within English, Math, Science, and History.
Enrollment for the January 2014 term is now open!
Space is limited for our Credit Recovery courses. Please watch for an email after completing the application that gives you information on next steps.
Credit Recovery classes are designed for students who were not successful in class the first time around. Students receive credit based on mastery of class subjects. Credit Recovery classes begin in August and January. The classes offered align with the current semester, i.e., English 11A will only be offered in the first semester starting in August and English 11B will only be offered in the second semester starting in January.
|August Term||August 1st|
|January Term||December 1st|
The fee for students enrolled in a Jeffco School is $20.00 per family. The fee for all other students is $200 per 0.5 credits, plus a one time $25 enrollment processing fee.
Students may drop a course during the credit recovery session. Students must contact the J21VA main office or counselor, have permission from their home high school counselor and parent to drop the course. If all are in agreement, the course will not be placed on the transcript.
Students must show progress in their credit recovery course(s) on a weekly basis. If a student does not show progress for 3 weeks, the student will be notified they have one week to make progress. If after that week there is no progress by the student, the student will be removed from the course. The course will not appear on their transcript.
Enrollment includes full payment of the course fee(s) by the week before the start date. Payment can be accepted in the following forms:
