MECHS also serves students who need to make up missed credits from their regular high school, enabling them to stay on academic track and graduate with their peers.
MECHS is a year-round high school that offers all of Georgia's required curriculum courses as well as a variety of vocational courses and state-mandated testing. While students cannot enroll at Mountain Education this summer for credit recovery, they can enroll for initial credit for courses in Math, ELA, Science and Social Studies.
