Buncombe County Schools' Graduation Initiative will again be offering the Twilight School program for high school students to earn new credits or recover credits in the evening. Any student who has failed a course and needs to repeat it or any student who needs a new course to get back on track for graduation may apply.
BCS Middle and High School students will have the opportunity to earn credit for high school courses. It is an opportunity for an individual student who has an exceptional mastery of course content and who wishes to earn credit and move on into something more meaningful or challenging.
This opportunity is part of the district’s Enrollment for Education Solutions (EES) agreement and will provide students with a tool for learning at home using the most current, universally accepted platforms in the marketplace today.
