Currently, Learn Everywhere legislation has not been introduced in Missouri. However, this page provides students and families with information about available options for earning credit for out-of-classroom learning. While Learn Everywhere allows for program providers to be approved to offer credit-bearing learning opportunities, for the programs listed below, it is the student’s responsibility to submit an application and complete the program requirements.

Academic Credit for Out-of-Classroom Learning

Proficiency (Competency)-Based Credit

School districts/charters may award high school credit to students upon demonstration of mastery of the competencies for a particular course. Credit may be awarded through a proficiency (competency)-based method which requires the establishment of the level of student learning through a demonstration of knowledge and/or skill without regard for the amount of time taken in the learning process or the structure of instructional delivery.

Academic Credit for Community Service

Local boards of education that maintain a high school may include service-learning as part of any course contributing to the satisfaction of credits necessary for high school graduation and provide support for the use of service-learning as an instructional strategy at any grade level to address appropriate areas of current state educational standards for student knowledge and performance.
