Depending on your learning setting, you can sign in to Classroom with one of the following accounts:
- School account—Also known as a Google Workspace for Education account, this account is set up by an accredited school. It looks like email@example.com. If you don't know your Google Workspace for Education account details, ask your teacher or the school’s IT administrator.
- Personal Google Account—Set up by you or your parent or guardian. Typically, you use a personal Google Account outside of a school setting, such as in a homeschool or club. It looks like firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Google Workspace account—Set up by your organization’s admin. It looks like email@example.com.
Note: Due to privacy laws, parents and guardians can't access Classroom or student assignments. They can get email summaries if the teacher allows it. For details, go to About guardian email summaries.
