- UNIQUE PROGRAMS
- Independent Study: Every 11th and 12th grade student in good academic standing is eligible to spend two to three weeks in February and March doing a self-designed independent study research project or a professional internship. Recent ISIP projects have included legal assistance, language immersion, marketing, music composition, graphic design, architecture, desktop publishing, jewelry-making, firefighting, elementary education, and volunteering with a medical mission in Ecuador.
- Alternative Course Contracts An Alternative Course Contract provides an opportunity for a student to take a course not offered in the regular curriculum. A student, in consultation with the Office of Student Services and a member of the GSA faculty, may design the curriculum and write a course proposal that will include a description of the course, goals and objectives, and the amount of credit to be earned.
- Arts Festival Every spring the students and faculty at GSA spend a week celebrating the Arts. Local artists come to GSA and conduct dozens of workshops in the arts: dance, music, film, painting, poetry, creative writing, woodworking, metal-tooling, photography, and more. Students participate in arts workshops during the mornings, and enjoy all-school arts performances in the afternoons. All students are encouraged to join workshops.
- Ocean Studies/Maine Skippers program-Hands on interactive study of Maine's ocean and waterways environment. Project based along with academic study.
