**Summer School will be hosted at Chattahoochee High School June 10-July 12 **​

**No summer school classes July 4, 5, & 8** 

Summer School for Face-to-Face, Fulton Virtual, and Georgia Virtual Registration is open!  Summer School is an opportunity for high school students to accelerate or recover credits during the summer.  Face-to-face facilitation and at home virtual offerings exist. The summer sessions are condensed versions of content provided during the school year, and students must have their course requests approved by their counselor before being enrolled.  Summer school registration does not require an online contract.  All face-to-face and virtual students who are taking an EOC course must participate in EOC testing which will take place at the Summer School site.  ​​

  • Face-to-Face Facilitation:
    • Hosted at Chattahoochee High School
    • A subject area teacher serves as the facilitator for the course and the content is completed online.  Face-to-face facilitation provides a designated time, location, and the technology needed for students to complete courses.
    • All EOC courses (9th Lit, 11th Lit, Algebra 1, Geometry, Biology, Physical Science, US History, and Economics) plus Personal Fitness are available for students who have previously failed that specific course(s).

** We advise students to only attempt 0.5 or 1.0 credit of summer courses. **

  • 1 semester long course (0.5 credit) requires about 3 hours of work a day
  • 1 year long course (1.0 credit) requires about 6 hours of work a day
  • Expect 6 to 9 hours of work a day if your student enrolls in an accelerated math course​​
​​**Other Important Information**
Please also note that for high school students there are specific promotion requirements which are based on the number of credits a student has earned.  You can check your student's transcript on Home Access Center on the "Grades" tab, then click on "Transcript."  You will need to add up all the credits earned each semester to get the total number of credits earned.  Promotion requirements for each grade level are below.  If your student falls short on credits, then please know they will not be promoted to the next grade level and they will be assigned to the previous grade level homeroom.  
  • ​Students must have at least 5 credits by the end of July in order to be promoted to 10th Grade
  • Students must have at least 11 credits by the end of July in order to be promoted to 11th Grade
  • Students must have at least 17 credits by the end of July in order to be promoted to 12th Grade 
​Promotions are not made in the middle of the school year unless the student is graduating that year (e.g. May 2019).  

Once a student registers for Summer School, it will come to a CHS counselor for approval.
