Credit Recovery and Original Credit Resources

Credit Recovery - Mountain Heights Academy

Credit recovery is available for students in grades 9-12 who failed a core class while enrolled full-time at Mountain Heights Academy during the previous school year. Students can only enroll in credit recovery if they took the original credit class and received an F. Counselors will be double-checking each registration for accuracy.

Students who failed elective classes will either have to take another class to replace the credit or do grade replacement. Grade replacement is when the student takes the same class for a second time to earn a new passing letter grade. Please discuss all options available to you with your school counselor.

Mid-Year Credit Recovery will begin in September 2022.

Mountain Heights Academy Summer School takes place in June and July and allows students to make up credit in core class areas. The cost is the same as midyear credit recovery. Summer school students who were enrolled full-time during the previous academic year are able to use a Chromebook that they received during the school year. Once credit recovery is completed, students are required to return the Chromebook to our West Jordan office. There are no exceptions to this policy. Mountain Heights Academy classes can be accessed from any computer that has access to the internet, but students will not be successful when trying to complete classes on a personal cell phone.
