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.
Distance Learning in Effect – Semester 2 Update
While some elementary students have already returned to in-person learning, until further notice and/or directions from Governor Gavin Newsom, all high schools will continue to be open for distance learning ONLY until specific criteria are met and it is safe for students to return to the classroom.
Stanislaus County, part of the state’s San Joaquin District, is currently on the state watchlist and is under a stay-at-home order until further notice. For G230, we still are unsure about what that means, but we will stay in close contact with parents and students with any updates. In the meantime, current students, please maintain daily, online attendance – it is MANDATORY.
If you are a parent with a student currently on the G230 Academy waitlist, G230 Academy is now making appointments based on position on the waitlist. We are filling seats in both the Pearson and Johansen Academies. If you would like to speak to someone in the Academy, please call our main number at 209-574-8192. If you do not receive a response, please call 209-492-2094, Monday thru Friday, from 8:00am to 3:00pm. Waitlisted students will not lose their place. G230 staff will keep you as up-to-date as possible.
Students who were dismissed from the Academy at the end of Semester 1 must contact their home high school counseling office as soon as possible.

DISTRICT CALENDAR 2020-21
The District Calendar for the 2020-21 school year has been posted on the Modesto City Schools website! Find them now under Files & Links.
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.
