What is AYP?
AYP, or Adequate Yearly Progress, is a key measurement of a school's progress based on standards developed through 2001's No Child Left Behind (NCLB) education reform act. In Georgia, AYP is measured by performance on the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT), the percentage of students who participate in these state standardized tests, and academic performance. Under NCLB, schools that do not make AYP across multiple years could face a variety of actions, up to and including restructuring or closure.
How Does this Affect GCA?
GCA is proud to have met AYP for the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 school years (as a program of the Odyssey School) and looks forward to continued success in the coming years. We firmly believe our accomplishment is a testament to the quality of our exceptional teaching faculty, the strength of our school's culture and community, and the superior design and deliverability of the K¹² curriculum. We're proud of our school's performance, and we look forward to continued success in the coming years, and hope that more families will continue to make GCA the preferred method of education for Georgia's students!
