Extended day program offered to students at five high schools – Charles County Public Schools

Students in Grades 9 through 12 who attend Henry E. Lackey, La Plata, Maurice J. McDonough, Thomas Stone and Westlake high schools can earn high school graduation requirements outside of the regular school day by completing an extended-day course for original credit. Courses are taught using the online APEX/Edmentum learning platform with deadlines set for unit completion.
As North Point and St. Charles high schools operate on a block schedule versus a period schedule used by the five other high schools, students at North Point and St. Charles are currently eligible to complete eight credits per school year.
