Mid-year registration underway at Gwinnett Online Campus

SUWANEE — Mid-year registration for the Gwinnett Online Campus, which moved to a new location in July, is underway.

The school, designed for students who want to free up their schedule for extracurricular activities, graduate early, or have school-phobia, has opened its mid-year registration period for next semester through Nov. 20.

The charter school is for students from fouth grade through high school. It will host two informational meetings from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 4 and Nov. 19 at the school, which is located at 713 Hi Hope Road in Lawrenceville.

Interested families are encouraged to attend one of these sessions to learn more about the unique learning environment at Gwinnett Online Campus.

Students at the Gwinnett Online Campus learn the same curriculum and participate in the same tests as students enrolled in traditional Gwinnett schools. The difference is how they learn as they have flexibility to do work from home on their own time with direct support from teachers and administrators and visits to the campus.

The school has six interactive rooms where students can log in to classroom teaching from home, or take quizzes at home using their cellphone.

The school opened in 2011 with 160 students, but now counts 229 students, and reaches nearly 5,000 throughout supplemental classes. The school opened with just high school students, but has since added middle school and, this year, fourth- and fifth-graders.
