My child’s age would place her in 6th grade, but she is working on a 7th grade curriculum. Can she apply for part-time enrollment?
No. We know that some students may be working at an advanced pace; however, students must also fit into the academic and social expectations of the high school credit class. Students should fall within the appropriate age bracket to enroll part-time.
