Earn High School Credit via Challenge Exams

High school credit can be earned by challenging certain high school courses (not recovering credits) by taking and passing a challenge exam. This option is available to students in grades 8-12, with testing occurring annually in May at the Prairie High School Media Center. Courses that are eligible are:

  • Algebra I
  • Geometry
  • English 9
  • English 10
  • Biology
  • Washington State History

Students must register no later than April 15, 2022. Late registrations will not be accepted.

Registration Forms:  English    Spanish    Russian

At all middle schools, RHL, SVHS, and CAM, the signed application form and fee will be turned into the building registrar.

At Battle Ground High School and Prairie High School, the signed application form and fee will be turned in at the ASB office.

To pay the fee online, go to https://wa-battleground.intouchreceipting.com/. The student’s username is the student ID# and the password is the student’s last name with the first letter capitalized (how it’s listed in Skyward).

  • The assessment fee is $25.00 per .5 semester credit course and fees are non-refundable. Allow a minimum of 2 hours per exam. Students may take multiple exams but must pay for each .5 semester credit course they wish to challenge by April 15, 2022.
  • English 9 and English 10 include a written performance task within each .5 credit course. The challenge exam and the written performance task may require more than 2 hours to complete. An exam may not be started within the last hour of each session.
  • Grades of B- through A must be earned in order to receive credit for a challenged course. The student/parent must initiate the process in order to have credits and grades posted to the student’s high school transcript. Be aware that credit or grade transfer may negatively impact the student’s grade point average and subsequent class rank.
  • Students may attempt the exams more than once on an annual basis. However, a $25 fee is required for each .5 semester credit course attempted.
