Enrollment and Attendance FAQs

Who can enroll in GCA?

According to Georgia regulations, students must reside in Georgia and be age five by September 1, 2013. Admission to GCA is based on completion and submission of all enrollment forms and materials within state guidelines.

How many of my children can attend the Georgia Cyber Academy?

Since Georgia Cyber Academy provides all the lesson plans, materials, and teacher support needed for kindergarten through twelfth grade, you may find it easier to enroll more than one of your children at GCA.

How much does it cost to attend the Georgia Cyber Academy?

As a public virtual school, there is no tuition. Georgia Cyber Academy provides students all instructional materials for the program. Students and families will be responsible for providing some consumable materials.

I would like to enroll my child in GCA and another public school. Does the GCA program allow for this kind of dual enrollment?

The GCA program is a full-time, comprehensive academic program and, thus, does not lend itself to dual enrollment.

Can I take a vacation during the school year?

The school calendar includes school "holidays" or vacation time. Whenever possible, family vacations should align with school vacation days. If a student skips a day during the week, he or she will be marked absent. Vacation is not an approved reason for absence in the state of Georgia.

Parents can apply for "Educational Leave of Absences" during the school year. Requests must be submitted to the Head of School 10 days prior to the absence. Leave will be approved based upon consistent student progress and attendance. No educational leave will be granted in any of the testing windows for state mandated testing.
