8th Grade Algebra Credit
For students who took Algebra I in the 8th grade, this information can be added to the high school transcript. To do this, parents can request in writing to have the course added to their student’s transcript. Please pick up a form in the counseling center, sign and submit it to your student’s assigned counselor.
*Colleges will assume that a student who takes Geometry as a freshman also took Algebra as an 8th grader, so it is not necessary for the class to be added.
**Please note that once it is put on the transcript, it cannot be taken off.
***Students who earned a “B” or lower grade might keep it off, as it may lower G.P.A.
In order to add any coursework from middle school to the high school transcript, the class must be equal in content and rigor to the same course offered at the high school. Please contact the Counseling Center with any questions regarding this.
