G230 Academy

G230 Academy Logo

G230 Academy provides students that are struggling in a traditional classroom setting the opportunity to obtain academic credit and extended teacher support in an alternative setting designed to help those students earn their high school diploma.

Students in 12th grade who are deficient credits and need recovery intervention in order to make up credits and receive a diploma receive enrollment priority. Those who achieve sufficient credit recovery prior to graduation may graduate with their current high school site, or they may return to their comprehensive site of residence at the semester if they are back on track for graduation.



Seniors and 5th year or Super Seniors have priority on the wait list to enroll at G230 Academy.  Juniors may be placed on the wait list now for the 2019-20 school year.  Students and parents will be contacted as soon as the referral has been processed and a seat is available.  Intakes or orientation interviews typically are scheduled at 9:30 am or 1:00 pm.  Please call the Academy at (209) 492-5128 with any questions.


A new Cell Phone Policy will take effect for the 2018-19 school year.  Cell phones and smart watches will not be allowed at any time in G230 Academy.  NO EXCEPTIONS.


Students are required to earn a MINIMUM of 20 credits per quarter/40 credits per semester. Attendance is also immensely important to student success, therefore, students will be dropped should they reach 10 absences. Please make sure your student is on track for graduation!


Important dates for the 2018-19 school year have already been posted on the Modesto City Schools website!  Find them now under Files & Links.

Who Attends?

Down Credits - High school juniors and seniors who are deficient credits, need recovery intervention and accelerated options to make up credits and get back on track for graduation.  Seniors have priority but junior referrals are accepted for the following school year.

Special Circumstances

  • Students identified as at-risk of dropping out and who, for a variety of reasons, have found that the traditional structure of a comprehensive site is not the ideal learning environment for them.
  • Students who demonstrate skills in organization, motivation, and self-discipline that would make an individualized, on-line learning environment more suitable for their learning style and success.
  • Students must be able to attend classes daily and provide their own transportation.
  • Students must demonstrate behavior consistent with a quiet, productive learning environment.

How is a student enrolled?

High school administrators and counselors refer students to the G230 Academy. Enrollment depends on available space. When the program reaches capacity, subsequent referrals are placed on a wait-list until space becomes available. G230 Academy staff notify counselors and/or students or parents when space opens up and they are next on the wait-list. In some cases, the G230 Academy can enroll students who have not obtained their diploma and who have not been continuously enrolled in school after their 12th grade year.
