How it Works
A Flexible Credit Recovery Solution for Grades 6–12
When families look for help to get their children's grades moving in a positive direction, many find that Keystone's credit recovery program is the ideal solution that offers:
- Flexibility, with coursework that can be completed from anywhere
- Affordable tuition
- More than 40 subjects available in online and correspondence formats
And with self-paced courses that can be started at any time, our program is a perfect way to retake courses previously failed and get back on schedule to graduate on time.
Credit recovery units are not intended as original credit and do not re-teach content for an entire course. Students complete short-term coursework for credit, which is awarded at their school's discretion.
WHO CAN ENROLL
Families and Schools Work Together on a Credit Recovery Solution
Keystone accepts enrollments in credit recovery courses from students who meet the following requirements:
- Students must be referred to the Keystone Credit Recovery program by their school counselor, principal or other authorized school official. The school official's signature is required on the enrollment application.
- Students must have been previously enrolled in a course but failed to achieve a passing grade.
How Credit Is Earned and Awarded
Keystone's credit recovery program provides coursework that students can complete independently whenever and wherever they need to—at home, at school, or on the go.
Students in online courses submit multiple assignments during their enrollment and once submitted for evaluation, complete the courses and submit their work to Keystone for evaluation. Students in print courses, are strongly encouraged to download their answer sheet from their Keystone student application, all submissions for the print courses need to be uploaded and sent through the Keystone student application. All teachers, once work is received, will evaluate gradable work within a 72-hour timeframe. Final grade will be sent to the student and the school on file, and the school will award credit at its discretion.
Students can start a course in Keystone's credit recovery program at any time, year-round. Coursework for middle school students is available in correspondence format only. High school coursework is available in both correspondence and online formats.
When enrolling in semester courses there is a minimum of 4 weeks and a maximum of 8 weeks. When enrolling in full year courses, these will be split into 2 semester sections, each with a minimum of 4 weeks and a maximum of 8 weeks, additional time can be requested by your school counselor as needed. The Keystone school does not issue course credit, a grade report is sent back to the school and the school of record determine if credit is then issued for the course.
