How do CD-SM students earn enough credits, if they can’t do it all at Carpe Diem or Sonoma Mountain?
More than enough work is provided each day for students to complete their core academic requirements. Those who are making up for previous failures, however, have to work more each day to graduate on time, or continue at their current pace and spend more than four years in high school.
Those who want to graduate on time can earn additional credits through a combination of after-school courses taken through CD-SM, courses at another school such as Petaluma High or Santa Rosa Junior College, or through pre-approved independent study activities.
Students who are in serious need of credit recovery may be better placed at another alternative site, such as San Antonio HS.
