Principal's Message
Welcome to our new and returning families as we begin the 2021-2022 school year at Gwinnett Online Campus on Monday, August 16, 2021. We are excited to have our returning students back and thrilled to welcome our new students.

It is important to remember that it takes time for students to learn how to navigate the new systems and processes which support their online learning. If you need help, please do not suffer in silence. You may reach out to your teacher via email, text or a phone call.

GOC's weekly communication tool, the #GOCOWLS, will be emailed to parents, students and staff each Thursday. This is the BEST resource for information regarding weekly campus happenings. Archived editions of the weekly #GOCOWLS can also be found on our main website by clicking HERE.

Our entire faculty and staff are beyond excited and committed to helping students reach their greatest potential as they continue to grow and flourish this school year.
