Passing this course satisfies a Geometry course for CHC credit.  Due to the nature of the course with counting for academic credit, students are NOT allowed to miss class.  These classes will complete a year worth of material in seven weeks.  If vacationing during the weeks that the classes are meeting, it is best not to take the course and complete it during the normal academic year. If you are a student from another school, it is the student's responsibility to check with your school to see if they will accept our class for credit.
