Global Academy Online Summer School

Attention: Summer school recommendations must be made by your student's counselor. Once a recommendation is made, parents will receive an email to confirm and pay. This email should arrive during or immediately following spring break in March.

Global Academy will hold two online summer school sessions for students. These sessions are designed to be intensive work sessions. There will be no extensions granted for students who are not able to complete their course in the provided time frame. Students may continue their unfinished coursework when the fall semester begins, with the approval of their counselor.

Summer School Session Dates:
  • Session 1: June 1 - July 31

  • Session 2: July 1 - August 30

    Students who will miss time during a summer school session should not sign up for that session. It is recommended that students plan to utilize 3-4 hours per day to work on their online summer school course, in order to complete it in this short timeframe.

    COURSE OPTIONS

    Global Academy's summer school course options mirror what we offer during the school year. A complete list can be found here:

    HOW DO I SIGN UP?

    From January to March 2019, students should work with their counselors who will recommend summer school courses. When registration opens in late March 2019, students and parents will receive an email with official registration and payment instructions.

    HOW MUCH DO SUMMER SCHOOL COURSES COST?

    Summer school courses at Global will cost $160 per course.
    Note: Summer School payments will be available on the parent portal in late March 2019.


    ​HOW MANY COURSES CAN I TAKE?

    ​One per session, for a maximum of two for the entire summer.

    ​DO I HAVE TO TAKE COURSES IN BOTH SESSIONS?

    ​No. You can choose to take just one class if you wish.

    HOW ARE THE COURSES ORGANIZED?

    Courses are divided into units which consist of several lessons, assignments, and a module exam. At the end of the course students will take a final exam. The final must be taken in-person at the Global Academy office.

    WILL MY GRADES APPEAR ON MY TRANSCRIPT?

    Your grades will appear on your Gilbert Public Schools transcript. Please remember that each online course is worth 0.5 credit; if you are taking a year-long course you will need to take both semesters to earn the full credit.

    ​HOW DO I SIGN UP IF I AM AN OUT-OF-DISTRICT STUDENT?

    ​You will need to fill out the Gilbert Public Schools online registration form (found at http://www.gilbertschools.net) and select Global Academy as the school. We will contact you with a request for classes and to assess the fee.

    WHAT IF I HAVE TECHNICAL ISSUES?

    GAOnline@gilbertschools.net can assist with issues related to the Buzz website or curriculum (passwords, accessing course material, etc.). If you're having trouble with your computer, you'll need to consult a computer technician.
