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. 11th graders may be enrolled after April testing at the sites.

G230 Academy at Pearson is now taking referrals from school sites. There are 2 sessions: the AM session, from 7:45 AM – 11:45 AM, and the PM session, from 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM. In-person attendance is mandatory.
Students will be assigned seats to maintain social-distancing and contract tracing protocols. Masks are required at all times in the Academy and hand sanitizer is readily available at the door, at each student workstation, and around the classroom.

Covid-Related Short Term Indpendent Study
For students absent for Covid-related symptoms and/or quarantine, the state of California created legislation to support students at home. As of October 18, 2021, students who fall under the Covid-related absence category will be allowed to continue learning from home through a form of Short Term Indpendent Study.
In order for students to participate in this program while out for Covid- related symptoms and/or quarantine, parents are REQUIRED to complete a Master Agreement for Site Independent Study.” Please click the top link under Files and Links in the top right corner of this page to learn more and to find out how to access the form.
This Agreement will remain in effect from the time it is submitted through the end of the school year. For any questions, please contact your student’s G230 Academy teacher.

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.
- 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.
