MOWR (Move on When Ready)
This past year the State of Georgia initiated a program that allows students, who are ready, in 9th 12th grades, to take college courses. As a student of WHCA, these courses can be completed at our school, online, or though on campus attendance at no additional expense.

Not all students are ready to pursue college course, but some are able to handle the additional rigor and workload. If the school recommends the student, then the students and parents who decide to pursue college course need to be aware that courses taken through MOWR are counted as college credit and high school credit. If the student does poorly, then they will not receive credit for high school either.

If you are interested in your child participating in MOWR, please contact the office for more information.
