High school is a time of self-discovery and preparation. At GAC, students prepare for college and beyond with a combination of rigorous academics and important world experiences. Students begin college counseling in the 9th Grade. They are supported and encouraged as they find their path and achieve their goals with a variety of activities, engaging learning opportunities, and intentional college preparation. We have intentionally built a learning model that allows for choice and the opportunity to go deep in a chosen area.
The high school has just over 600 students, with approximately 150 students per grade and an average class size of 16. Our unique high school complex design creates an environment that promotes collaboration and reflects modern workplaces.
GAC’s High School leads Atlanta independent schools with an offering of 29 AP courses, 25 honors courses, 7 world languages, and over 40 High School STEM Classes with over 20,000 square feet of facilities dedicated to STEM experiences.
Colleges want to attract students who stand out. They want to see motivation, tenacity, passion, intelligence, and generosity. The GAC High School curriculum builds experiences: academic, faith, mission, and life. Students participate in STEM courses and activities, rigorous AP classes, online learning with Ethos School, leadership training with the Prefect system, and culture-building opportunities with global education initiatives.
"My son's relationships with his teachers have made his learning experience in High School extraordinary. His teachers are always accessible to help answer questions, and they understand his unique learning style. They provide a learning environment for him where thinking differently is celebrated, so he believes anything is possible in his future!"
