I have three kids that currently attend this school and I am constantly amazed at the quality of education that they each receive. It's a great environment for learning, and the entire staff seems to work in harmony to create a great atmosphere. If your looking for a great school, I would recommend a tour of GCA.

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
