Each year the Gahanna-Jefferson Public School district offers a wide variety of summer courses for students—pre-kindergarten through high school—as part of the 'Journey To Learning' program. There are programs for intervention/remediation, enrichment, high school credit and make-up classes.

Pre-k, kindergarten enhancement, and classes for reading and math improvement for grades 1-4 will be at Goshen Lane Elementary, ​while language arts and math improvement classes for grades 5-8 will be at Royal Manor Elementary. For high school students, the following new credit classes are offered: physical education, information technology, health, and speech. Make-up credit classes are also offered for English, math, social studies, science, and OGT.
