    Earning Credits Outside DHS

    Dacula HS offers multiple School Plus and Credit Recovery opportunities for our students. In addition, there are options for earning credits outside of what is offered at DHS. Through Gwinnett Online Campus, Georgia Virtual School, Phoenix High School, Summer School, and other options students can earn the credits needed towards graduation.

    See your counselor if you are interested in exploring any of these options.

    Credit Recovery

    DHS offers Credit Recovery sessions throughout the year for many different courses.  More information can also be found on the Community School page when registration windows are open.
