● Checks are made payable to CCPS, and cannot be written for over $300. More than one check may be written to cover the cost of summer tuition (example – for a total tuition of $350, write one check for $300, another for $50).

Health and Personal Fitness Credit:
● A half-credit (0.5) each of Health and Personal Fitness courses are required by Georgia for high school graduation
● If a student does not complete all of the required portions of the Health course during summer session, they should enroll in the course during the academic year without receiving summer credit.
● Personal Fitness may be earned in one of these two ways:
o For students in a school-sponsored sport, summer marching band, chorus, theatre, or art: Document 45 hours of athletic activity in the school activity practice or events during the summer or school year. The time must be outside the school day and validated by a certified CCPS coach/teacher on the Personal Fitness Documentation Sheet.
o For students not participating in an athletic activity or marching band/fine arts: Enroll in the combined Health and Personal Fitness online course with the Catoosa Online Academy for a full 1.0 credit. Along with taking the online course content and quizzes in Health and Fitness, the student will submit an e-log of physical activities to the online teacher each week.
● Once the Catoosa Online Academy Coordinator receives the Personal Fitness activity log sheet and the course grade for Health, student grades will be sent to the home school for recording on the student transcript.
● The Alcohol and Drug Awareness Program (normally completed during Health courses at the home school) must be completed online. This is required for the student to obtain a driver’s license with the state of Georgia. The online ADAP program is presented by the Georgia Department of Driver Services and not affiliated with the COA. It is the student’s responsibility to complete the e-ADAP (approximately 3-4 hour course) and print off the completion certificate to take with them for the driver license. The certificate usually becomes available for the student to print about 3-4 days after completion of the online course. ADAP information will be distributed at orientation.

Other Course Information:
● Passing grades for courses will be given to the home-zoned schools to place on the transcript.
● No grade will be reported to the home-zoned school for failing grade(s).
● Foreign Language selections may be limited; please contact us about language courses.
● Courses may be taken for first-time credit or to recover credit.
● No refunds will be issued for tuition for any reason, including a failing grade earned in the course.
