2023 Summer School information

  • High School Summer School Options

    New for Summer School 2023:

    GCPS will pay for up to two summer school classes for high school students needing to retake a class they previously failed. The district is offering this option to students at no cost to address COVID-related learning gaps and to provide students with an additional opportunity to earn credit for courses failed.

    For students attending a high school summer learning program:

    • A student should take no more than two summer classes: two face-to-face classes, two online classes, or a combination.
    • For students taking a course for the first time (not previously taken/failed), the cost per course is $250 for current GCPS students. Non-GCPS students pay $275 per course. All fees are due at the time of online registration.
    • Transportation is not provided for face-to-face summer school classes or for the face-to-face sessions required for Online Campus courses.
    • Any student planning to participate in the summer school graduation ceremony on July 7 must take all summer classes with Gwinnett County Public Schools. Summer Graduation will be held at Gas South Arena.
    • Face-to-face summer classes will follow a five-day week, Monday through Friday, with school holidays (no classes) on June 19 and July 4.
    • Rising 9th graders may take Health and/or Personal Fitness (PE). Both courses are required for graduation. These courses are available at Discovery HS (face-to-face), Gwinnett Online Campus (online), and many Community Schools (face-to-face). GCPS rising 9th graders pay $250 for each of these classes.

    Credit Recovery is another option for earning credit for qualifying students who previously took a course and were unsuccessful. To enroll in Credit Recovery, students must meet GCPS qualifications and have approval from their school counselor. Contact your counselor for important information if you are interested in this option. Credit Recovery is available through local schools, face-to-face summer classes, and GOC. 

  • Face-to-face Summer School logo Gwinnett County Public Schools' Face-to-Face High School Summer School is a fee-based program that allows students to take courses to get ahead or to make-up a class previously failed.  Courses are available to all high school students, including selected courses for rising 9th graders.

    Summer Learning - Support, Enrichment, Achievement


    This summer’s free learning experience for Gwinnett elementary and middle school students—set for June 12 to June 30—will offer enrichment and achievement opportunities as well as support for our students who did not meet requirements for promotion to the next grade. The goal is to help students get a head start on next year's learning.

    With GCPS' Summer Learning—Support + Enrichment + Achievement (SEA) Program, learning will either be accelerated to look ahead at what students will be learning at the next grade level or support will be provided to help students meet promotion requirements. Students will work in flexible learning groups and teachers will share information in new ways to help prepare students for the coming school year. In addition, all students in SEA will participate in enrichment activities. Fun and engaging learning opportunities will cover subject areas typically offered in Specials and Connections courses.

    During the three-week session, (June 12-June 30) students will attend Monday through Friday. June 19 is a school holiday. Elementary students will attend the free Summer Learning—Support + Enrichment + Achievement (SEA) Program from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the middle school students will attend the program from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. This opportunity is available in an in-person format only and there is no cost to participate. Breakfast and lunch will be provided for all participants at no charge.

    Identified students will be invited to participate in the Summer Learning—Support + Enrichment + Achievement (SEA) program.
