Credits Earned in Junior High 8 th grade students currently enrolled in Algebra I, Geometry, and/or Biology I may elect to receive high school credit. Electing to receive credit also means the grades will transfer to the high school transcript and will be used in the calculation of a student’s grade point average and class rank. Students in the Class of 2018 will have until May 1, 2015 to make a decision NOT to accept the credit. The default decision will be to transfer it. Please discuss the impact of electing to take the credit(s)with your high school counselor if you have any questions.
