Students trying to earn high school credit outside of the classroom can now learn Spanish, STEM entrepreneurship and financial literacy since some new programs have been approved for the state’s Learn Everywhere program.

The Learn Everywhere program, which was passed into law in 2018, allows students to gain high school credit for learning outside the classroom, like in an after-school tutoring session or an extracurricular activity. New Hampshire’s Department of Education has a list of 15 approved programs students can complete to earn high school credit outside school that includes topics ranging from robotics to karate, music and esports.

This month, the Londonderry-based company Spanish NVivo has been added to the list, which offers Spanish 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and Advanced Placement courses online.

“Spanish NVivo, which is available in an online format, improves access to Spanish language acquisition opportunities for students across the state. The addition of the Spanish NVivo courses further increases the diversity of the Learn Everywhere portfolio of program offerings,” said Tim Carney, administrator of educational pathways for the New Hampshire Department of Education.

Also new to the list is the Nashua-based company EnCube Labs, which teaches entrepreneurship, problem-solving, solutions development and applied STEM using a Zero2Maker and Zero2Entrepreneur framework. Its goal is to create entrepreneurs from underserved communities.

Additionally, Massachusetts-based nonprofit FitMoney has been approved for New Hampshire 8th- through 12th-graders, and provides free online financial literacy programs.

“The New Hampshire Department of Education is thrilled to offer an array of Learn Everywhere programs that provide new learning opportunities for today’s youth, who are eager to capture learning outside of the classroom,” said Frank Edelblut, commissioner of education.
