Thirty College Credit Route to NJ High School Diploma
MyMelamed Student Success program enables students to succeed in reaching their educational goals. Our combination of online materials and live teacher support provides a supportive and enjoyable framework for students of all ages.
Our newest program is designed for adult learners, ages 16 and up, who are not enrolled in a high school with secular studies. As of 2013, the State of New Jersey recognizes 30 college credits in core subjects as an acceptable demonstration of knowledge entitling the student to a state-issued high school diploma.
Included in the 30 general education credits must be a minimum of three credits in each:
- English language arts
- Social studies
Plus six total credits in any of the following:
- Visual and performing arts
- Comprehensive health and physical education
- World language
- Technology and 21st century life and careers.
MyMelamed Student Success program now includes a track to support adult learners wishing to gain proficiency in these subjects as preparation to successfully pass college-level courses in those subjects. MyMelamed also provides guidance to students seeking to receive Yeshiva credits for qualifying studies towards the 30-credit fulfillment.
This alternative route to a High School diploma is suitable for adult students who wish to simultaneously earn college credit, thereby shortening the process towards a college degree.
