If you are a regular reader of our blog, there is no doubt that you will have come to realize that students around the country love TeenPact because of the life change that they experience and watch happen at every event. The presence of God is felt in worship, sessions, time spent in the Capitol, and fellowship with other like-minded believers.


However, while TeenPact is first and foremost a discipleship ministry, it is also an academic program. It’s true – the number one goal of our staff, interns, State Coordinators, and leadership in the National Office, is to point students to a deeper relationship with their Creator – but there are also matters of curriculum and homework and class time that make TeenPact a scholastic program as well. In fact, all students who complete a Four Day State Class are eligible to earn 1/3 of a Carnegie unit of high school civics or government credit.


Carnegie units are named after Andrew Carnegie, an American industrialist from the early 20th century who developed the system to standardize graduation requirements among colleges around the United States. Today, his system is used by the vast majority of school districts around the country – including in each of the states that TeenPact holds a class. Because of this, many school administrators and homeschool parents utilize a Four Day class to fulfill the civics or government credit requirements in their state.


With this in mind, we wanted to share a few pointers for how to earn and keep track of the credit that you can get from a Four Day State Class:


All in all, the Four Day State Class is a valuable complement to any high school curriculum.
