    GCPS Summer Enrichment and Acceleration Program (SEA)

    This summer’s learning experience for Gwinnett elementary and middle school students has been redesigned to support our 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 (Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies). Students will participate in fun and engaging activities and learning typically offered in Specials and Connections courses.

    Class sizes will be small and health and safety practices (masks, distancing, etc.) will remain in effect during this summer learning time.  Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Students will attend the SEA program from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. during the three-week session (June 14-July 2). This opportunity is available in an in-person format only and there is no cost to participate. Students who prefer a digital learning environment can access online lessons and activities for summer enrichment by logging into the MyeCLASS student portal.

    Summer Enrichment + Acceleration will be held June 14—July 2, 2021.

    If you are interested in your child attending SEA, please complete the attached form.
