Choose from Flexible Course Options

Select from comprehensive courses or prescriptive credit recovery courses, with content tailored to your high school student’s needs. Both options include the support of ALVS certified teachers, who offer course guidance, progress monitoring, real-time support and detailed feedback. 

Credit Recovery Courses
Make up lost credits at a faster pace and an affordable price. Credit recovery courses are personalized to focus on the material your student needs to master. If the course you need isn’t available, our comprehensive courses can also be used to recover credits.

Comprehensive, NCAA Courses
Comprehensive courses are ideal for student-athletes looking to recover credits and maintain NCAA eligibility. Many students also choose to retake a course to improve their grade and overall GPA for college and scholarship applications. See our catalog of NCAA courses.

Get Back on Track With Credit Recovery Courses

ALVS credit recovery courses can help your student catch up quickly and efficiently, and graduate on time. Students take a pretest to identify what they already know so they can skip ahead to what they need to learn. 

Save Time and Effort

Focus on growth instead of review—the pretest results shape the course content, so your child will only work on material they have yet to master.

Finish in 10 Weeks

Designed to fit alongside school schedules, our 1-credit courses can be completed in 10 weeks. Learn at a pace that works for your family.

Credit Recovery Courses

No need to wait until summer to recover credits. Our Credit Recovery Courses are available year-round!

Retake Any Course in Our Catalog

If the credit recovery course you need isn’t available, your student can retake any course in our catalog—choose from core, A-G approved and advanced courses.
