Living out our purpose.

GAC graduates are prepared for college and life.

When a student graduates from GAC, he or she is prepared to accomplish whatever great things God has in store. Immersed in a community where challenge, integrity, faith, and rigor are the norm, GAC students are prepared to go into the world confidently.

Our rigorous, purposeful curriculum positions many of our students to attend and excel at elite colleges and universities. Post-college, our graduates go on to hold prestigious positions including managers, professors, physicians, research fellows, entrepreneurs, police officers, and senior directors. As an example, Annalise Peters (class ‘06) serves as the Assistant U.S. Attorney in the United States Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia. Major Jim Knauss, class of ‘03, is an A-10C Experimental Test Pilot for the United States Air Force.

GAC graduates don’t just excel collegiately and professionally. They lead lives of integrity and purpose. Spartans take pride in raising families, participating in church, and serving their local and global communities, just as they did when they were on campus with us.
