High School Summer Learning

  • ​High School Summer Learning is an opportunity for high school students accelerate or recover credits during the time between school years. The summer session is a condensed version of content provided during the school year, and students must have their course requests validated by their counselor before being enrolled. 

    For summer 2023, students who have previously failed a course have the opportunity to retake the course for free through Fulton Virtual School or via Face to Face Summer Learning. Students may take up to two credits at no cost.

    Students can choose to participate through Fulton Virtual School from May 31 - July 12 or Face-to-Face Summer Learning from June 5 - July 10. 

    Students who choose to accelerate may do so through Fulton Virtual School during the summer.  Acceleration courses require tuition.

    Summer Learning courses will also be offered for special education students who require an adapted curriculum (those assessed on the Georgia Alternate Assessment 2.0). These students will participate in face-to-face summer learning June 5 - July 10. The content will focus on the core content areas: English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.
