Hybrid Program

Pursue your passion. Experience community. Achieve your dreams.

Greater Atlanta Christian School is the second largest Christian school in Georgia, ranked at the top of the state for teaching quality, arts, and athletics. More than that, we are a faith-infused, academically rich community where students, parents, and teachers share in the endeavor to Be Greater. In collaboration with our online school Ethos, we offer a dynamic hybrid program designed to meet the needs of students who are pursuing their passion at an elite level. Students pursuing their dreams can find balance and community while enjoying the moments that make school memorable and life-changing.

Students create a tailored schedule that combines face-to-face classes with our online platform, Ethos School. Half-days on campus allow students to be connected to the GAC community. They become an integral part of the student body and can engage in every possible activity, from academic teams to homecoming dance to musical theater. With access to a diverse student body, expansive co-curricular opportunities, high-quality teachers, and state-of-the-art campus facilities, students enjoy a well-rounded school experience and are prepared for greater opportunities in college and beyond.
 
Most online classes are taught by GAC faculty who are also available on campus to help students before or after classes.

Parents of Nicole Eigbedion, GAC Freshman, Top-ranked tennis player in Georgia:

“Attending GAC and having a flexible schedule has provided Nicole with the ability to explore a partial non-traditional academic schedule while pursuing a great academic experience and participating in extracurricular activities. All the teachers have been very accommodating, flexible, and cooperative and we have definitely felt very supported. In addition, the administrators have been spectacular in ensuring that Nicole's schedule is flexible and convenient. They communicate with the teachers on our behalf to ensure that we are all on the same page well in advance before Nicole starts her classes for the semester.”
