Students may earn high school credit for specified courses without spending a set number of hours taking the course in a classroom.

Under the state’s Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM) option, uniquely qualified students may “test out” or bypass a course if they have already mastered the content.

The program provides another opportunity for students to learn new content, to challenge themselves with the next level of rigor in a subject, and even graduate early. This option is not designed to replace existing accelerated pathways, such as the Academically and Intellectually Gifted (AIG) program at WCPSS.

If you are interested in the CDM option for your child, plan to attend one of the following Regional Information Sessions. Click here to find out more…

Volunteers Needed: “Reality of Money” Financial Literacy Event

Money and calendar

We need volunteers for the “Reality of Money” Event happening Friday, Nov. 4th at Middle Creek Community Center located next to the High School.

“Reality of Money” places each student in a scenario where they are 25 years old and employed. However, students are assigned the path that life has taken them on. Some students find they’re earning $40,000 per year and are married with children, while others are single parents making less than $20,000 annually. They will visit twelve stations where they have to make financial decisions on items such as housing, child care, transportation, etc.

Over 400 Middle Creek students will be participating in the event, a program developed by the State Employee’s Credit Union (SECU) that illustrates the financial challenges of adult life. The program’s goal is to help young people understand personal finances and the real-life implications of the choices they make as students and adults.

If you’ve ever paid bills or managed a family/personal budget then you are more than qualified to volunteer!

Visit this Signup Genius link and help volunteer at a very important event that helps show our students what financial life is like after High School.


Wake Tech Career and College Promises (CCP)

If my student is taking AP classes then why should I dual enroll at Wake Tech? Aren’t they both the same? Not really. The Wake Tech program has some great advantages over AP courses. But like most things, it comes with pros and cons.

Career and College Promises (CCP) is a free program for qualified junior/senior high school students to accelerate the completion of college credentials. It has two paths you can take. If you are planning to attend Wake Tech after high school, then you can get an early start by following the Career and Technical Education Pathway. If you are planning to attend a four year college, then you can take the College Transfer Pathway. This pathway has set courses that are included in the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement with UNC member institutions.

Actually I prefer the Wake Tech program over AP classes? Keep reading and I’ll tell you why.
