Middle School Summer Learning
Middle School Summer Learning is an opportunity for middle school students to accelerate or for those students who have failed one or more of the core content courses to receive extra support. Middle School students who attend Summer Learning will be required to take English/Language Arts and Math. The summer session is a condensed version of content provided during the school year, and students must have their course requests validated by their school before being enrolled.
For summer 2023, students who have previously failed a year-long World Language course have the opportunity to retake the course for free through Fulton Virtual School. Students may take up to two credits at no cost. In addition, students who have failed one or more core content courses may attend face-to-face summer learning at no cost.
Students can participate through Face-to-Face Summer School from June 5 - July 10, 2023.
Students who choose to accelerate through Fulton Virtual School during the summer from May 31 - July 12, 2023 will require tuition.
Face-to-Face Summer School courses will also be offered for special education students who require an adapted curriculum (those assessed on the Georgia Alternate Assessment 2.0). The content will focus on the core content areas: English/Language Arts and Mathematics.
