Summer School Registration

We recommend students take courses either through GA Virtual School (GAVS) or the DeKalb Online Academy (DOLA). Courses awarding .5 unit of credit are $250 and courses awarding 1.0 unit of credit are $500 for both GAVS and DOLA. Here are few things to consider:

  • GAVS allows parents and students to select either a 5 or 6 week course session with all courses ending July 15, 2016. GAVS offers both core and elective courses for the summer sessions. The last day to apply for a session is June 9, 2016. Please visit GA VIRTUAL SCHOOL for more information about courses offered and to register for your course(s).
  • DOLA courses officially begin June 8th and end on June 23, 2016. However, students who register and pay for their summer school courses in full during the month of May, will be able to begin working on their DOLA courses once payment is received. Only students who have failed a course and are seeking to recover credit are eligible for DOLA summer school. The last day to register is June 6, 2016. Please review the DOLA brochure below for details.

DOLA Summer School Information
Please keep the following in mind when registering for a course:
 
  • Student athletes who intend to register with NCAA should not use DOLA for summer school classes; DOLA is not NCAA approved.
  • All students are eligible to take a maximum of 2.0 Carnegie units (CU) from any accredited institution during the summer session. According to the Georgia Accrediting Commission (Standard 2: Summer School Part 3), schools may not grant credit for more than 2.0 CU's during the summer.
  • Magnet students are required to take all of their core classes as part of the Magnet cohort at Chamblee. Magnet students may not take core classes online.
  • Please EMAIL your school counselor to confirm which course(s) are needed in summer school before registering for any course(s).
  • AP Courses are not offered during the summer semester.
