School Reviews

I love GCA!! There are amazing sports (even gymnastics) and music programs! The teachers are very qualified and are great at explaining things. The dorm life is structured, yet you have freedom. The other staff, especially the deans, are very supportive and friendly. There aren''t really any cliques, almost all the students are very acceptable of each other. The spiritual atmosphere is amazing and you really learn how to better your walk with God. The campus and buildings are beautiful and well-maintained. Another bonus is the dorm rooms have tons of storage!!...I''d recommend it to anyone!!
