Overview

Cobb County School District’s Tuition Summer School is available for currently enrolled Cobb County School District students in grades 9 through 12. Courses may be taken for credit recovery or for initial credit. Face-to-face courses are offered in the four core areas and in health/personal fitness, however, courses actually taught vary according to student demand. Courses for initial credit are taught in a traditional format with a certified teacher planning and leading instruction. Students wishing to recover credit may take courses through the traditional approach or through computer-based NovaNET. Students may take NovaNET courses in the four core subjects. Although credits earned through Cobb County’s NovaNET count toward a student’s graduation requirements and meet admissions requirements to post-secondary institutions, NovaNET courses are not accepted by the NCAA for athletic eligibility.

Cobb County Tuition Summer School makes every effort to accommodate the needs of all students, however, registration for summer school does not guarantee placement in any particular class, particular period, or site. Placement is ultimately dependent upon the number of students enrolling in a particular course. 

In order to offer as many classes as possible, all courses will be offered as half units with 'A' and 'B' classes available during two distinct sessions. Students who need a 'Y' class or a whole unit, will simply register for an 'A' class during Session I and a 'B' class during Session II. This change will better be able to accommodate the needs of students, regardless of what schedule their high school uses. The change should have no real impact on students who need a whole unit, but those students needing only a half unit will enjoy the benefit of completing summer school in just two weeks.

All students should consult their school counselor to assist them with the registration process and to ensure that Tuition School is their best option for earning additional credit toward graduation.

Attendance: Since each summer school session lasts for only 10 days, daily attendance is critical. Missing a day in such a compressed schedule can drastically impact academic progress. For that reason, we ask that you do not plan trips, vacations, or appointments while summer school is in session. Any student missing 1.5 days during a session will be withdrawn from summer school and will not be issued a refund. However, students who are withdrawn for attendance during Session I may return for Session II if they have previously registered for a class being taught during that time period.

Graduation: The Summer School Graduation Ceremony will be held on July 12 at 7:30 p.m. at Osborne High School. Students completing high school graduation requirements through Tuition Summer School or through Cobb Virtual Academy may participate if they indicate their desire to do so and attend the required rehearsal.
