Do your summer school grades affect your cumulative GPA?

I got A's in US history in summer school. My cumulative GPA is 3.94. Would my GPA rise or would it not be affected at all?

I asked a friend of mine how summer school works and how it affects your GPA, and she said this: 'Summer school will replace the failing grade, and with whatever you earned completing all the assignments. It will also raise a student's GPA, depending on the score they got.' You got an 'A', so it will improve your GPA significantly.

I hope this helps. Sorry if it didn't.
