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.
COUNTDOWN TO GRADUATION-School Closure
By now you have probably heard that Modesto City Schools will be closed through the end of the school year, May 29, 2020, as a precaution and in response to the Coronavirus, or COVID-19 outbreak.
Students currently enrolled in G230 Academy, either at Pearson or Johansen, have been given instructions by classroom teachers how they can access assignments at home. Students, please make sure you know how to contact your caseload teacher if you need help. Keep checking Schoology and make sure you are signed up for Remind to get the latest updates.
G230 Staff is available Monday thru Friday from 7:45am – 4:00pm to assist you. Students, you should still be working daily to stay on track to graduate. Have questions? Check in with your caseload teacher.
For students on the wait list, you will not lose your place for next school year. As information is received from the school district we will keep you up-to-date.

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.
