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 courses, as well as the elective courses Recreation Sports and Event Training.
