  • High School Summer School Options

    New for Summer School 2021:

    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 this year.

    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, the cost per course is $250 for GCPS students. All fees are due at the time of online registration.
    • Rising 9th graders may take Health and/or Personal Fitness (PE). Both courses are required for graduation. These courses are available at Duluth HS (face-to-face), Gwinnett Online Campus (online), and many Community Schools (face-to-face). The fee for these courses is $250 each.

    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. Credit Recovery is available through local schools, face-to-face summer classes, and GOC. There is no cost to participate in Credit Recovery. 

  • 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.

  • Grades K-8

    Summer Enrichment + Acceleration


    This summer’s K-8 learning experience—set for June 14 to July 2—has been redesigned to support our elementary and middle school students who may have experienced learning loss due to the pandemic. The goal is to help students get a head start on next year’s learning.

    GCPS’ Summer Enrichment + Acceleration activities will focus on accelerating and expanding on student learning for the current grade and previewing what students will learn at the next grade level. Students will work in flexible learning groups and will use a range of learning strategies as part of their summer learning. And, this year’s summer program includes enrichment opportunities outside the core subject areas of Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Students will participate in fun and engaging activities and learning typically offered in non-core Specials and Connections courses.

    During the three-week session, (June 14-July 2), students will attend Monday through Friday. Elementary students will attend the 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. Class sizes will be small and health and safety practices like masks and physical distancing will remain in effect during this summer learning time.  Breakfast and lunch will be provided for all participants at no charge.

    Students who prefer a digital learning environment will be able to access online lessons and activities for summer enrichment by logging into the MyeCLASS student portal.
