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


Distance Learning in Effect – Semester 2/Quarter 4 Update

Students are able to participate in-person at G230 Academy @ Pearson as of Monday, March 29, 2021. If you are a current student and do not know which time/session you are able to attend, please contact your caseload teacher through Schoology messaging or email. You are welcome to come in-person every day except Wednesday.

If you would like to speak to someone in the Academy, please call the 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.



For eligible students, the high schools are holding in-person graduations with limited capacity. Please check your home school website for more details, or follow the link in FILES & LINKS to find out the date, time and location of your graduation.



G230 Academy PEARSON students will be allowed to attend Summer School in-person. The Academy will be open between June 3 – June 29, with only one session available from 8:00am – 11:30am. Please let your caseload teacher know as soon as possible if you are planning to attend Summer School.



Modesto City Schools is moving to a once-a-week meal pickup schedule. Current pickup times and locations will remain the same, however, instead of a daily meal pickup, students will now receive a week’s worth of breakfasts and lunches at each pickup.

Meals currently will only be distributed on Wednesdays. Students will receive five days of breakfasts and lunches each Wednesday. Again, current pickup times and locations will remain the same.

To pick-up meals, you must bring your student’s meal validation card.

For more information, call 209-574-1619.



If you are already a G230 Academy student, instructions for obtaining work permits have been posted in Schoology. Students who are new to G230 Academy must obtain a new work permit.



The District Calendar for the 2020-21 school year has 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.
