High School Credit This is a high school course. If your child stays in Algebra through the full year, they will receive one high school math credit. However, if they only stay in for one semester, they will not receive any credit. Must have four math credits to graduate Also, their grade will not go towards their high school GPA. This is a rigorous course, and is taught like a high school class. There will be new lessons taught daily, and homework nightly (even on the weekends).
