As we begin second semester, some students find themselves one or two credits short of having enough to graduate on time or move to the next grade level with their classmates. The Buncombe County School’s Graduation Initiative Program has an answer for students in that situation – Twilight School.
Twilight School is an evening program for high school students who need to earn new credits or recover credits previously failed. A full line of academic courses are available in an on-line credit recovery option while new credit offerings will be determined by student need. Credit recovery sessions are approximately 8 weeks in length and a student can recoup two credits by attending both sessions. New credit courses are 16 weeks in length, allowing students to earn one new credit.
Twilight School begins Wednesday, February 8th, meets Monday through Thursday from 4:00-6:00 pm. and will be held at the Nesbitt Discovery Academy campus located at the Buncombe County Schools Central Office Building on Bingham Road. Applications and additional information are available on the Buncombe County Schools’ home page near the bottom under the “Announcements” heading. This opportunity is free of charge to students.
Students are encouraged to first talk with your counselor or graduation initiative specialist to determine the best course(s) to choose based on your individual circumstances and your graduation plan. Don’t delay, register today.
