 Online Pathways to Graduation – MCPS

The Summer Online Pathway to Graduation program is for MCPS high school students who need additional credits to graduate.

Students work to complete up to 4 semester courses in seven weeks (or six weeks for seniors participating in the 2020 summer graduation).

These are not condensed classes (like summer school). Therefore, students are expected to spend a significant amount of time per day on coursework.
