School Reviews

This is a good school in many ways, but parents need to understand that their child is not receiving an accredited education. Upon graduation, if your child wants to attend certain colleges, their high school diploma will essentially be worthless because GCA is not an accredited institution. I was never told this nor were my peers and I did not find this out until years after graduation. If it was not for my local community colleges, I would never have been able to earn the degrees that I currently have. Think twice about sending your child here if you want them to receive a quality accredited education because, in today's world, a high-school diploma with Accreditation is simply a basic necessity.
