Lower Merion School District


Educational Experience/Coursework Outside the Lower Merion School District

Students often engage in educational experiences or coursework outside the District’s program. While these experiences may enrich and enhance a student’s learning, such courses will not be documented on an LMSD transcript nor be awarded District credit. Enrollment in these experiences is a decision made by a family or student, thus the District will not offer an opinion or guidance for participation.

Students are welcome to pursue outside courses on their own. However, credit will not be awarded towards graduation for outside courses.  The three-course sequence of Integrated Math 1, 2, and 3 may not be fulfilled through outside means and students cannot “skip” or test out of these courses.  In addition, Lower Merion does not recognize courses taken outside the District for acceleration purposes when those courses are associated with a Keystone Exam. The District does not administer or provide Advanced Placement exams for course offerings outside our high school program.
