Credit Recovery and Test Out

It is the responsibility of each student to be aware of Clarkston High School's graduation requirements. If you have failed a class, are behind in credits, or looking to advance in your curriculum, the options outlined below are an alternative means to earn credits. Please contact you counselor with any other questions.

Test Out: Students have the opportunity to earn credit by 'testing out' of a class offered at CHS. The student must score a 78% or higher on the test to earn credit. Students who successfully test out of a class will be awarded credit, but no letter grade will be given, The grade will be recorded as an "S" (Satisfactory), therefore the students GPA will not be impacted. Test outs are given only twice per year, in August and December.  We do not perform test-out on demand.

Due to the COVID 19 school shiudown, The August 2020 Test Out Forms will be submitted electronically, using this link: August 2020 Test Out Form

Study Materials may be checked out of the Media Center prior to June 5, 2020.  Since we are not in school right now due to the COVID 19 shutdown , date and time that study material can be picked up from the Media Center is TBD.

All test-out study materials can be checked out in the CHS Media Center, with the exception of PE/Health. You will find the PE/Health study guides below. The PE/Health test-out consists of three sections: The Fitness Gram test, The Reproductive Health test, and the Wellness test.
