Face-to-Face College Visits
College visits are a critical part of the college decision process. It's also very exciting to be on a college campus this time of year! GCA will set up several physical (face-to-face) visits. Most visits will include a campus tour as well as an informational session.
Virtual College Visits
Representatives from each college will present the exciting opportunities at their school! You will learn about the campus, clubs, sports, majors, and much more!
K12 National College and Career Workshops
Have you thought about life after high school? Have you considered the careers that you might be interested in and whether or not you want, or will need, to attend college? There is a lot to think about to get ready: where to go, what to study, how to apply, how to pay for it, and more.
It's never too early—or too late— to explore your options!

All high school juniors and seniors in Georgia public and private schools are encouraged to attend PROBE fairs. Counselors, principals, headmasters, superintendents, parents, and officials of institutions represented in the fairs are also urged to attend. Students prefer presentations to cover information that cannot be found in publications: transitions to college, academic climate, student regulations, financial aid, housing, and social and religious activities. Information should be supplied in sufficient quantities to give one to each interested student.
Schedule and Information Coming Soon!

Attention Male Students 18 Years of Age or Older (or who are approaching their 18th birthday)
Please find the following information regarding Selective Service Registration below:
"The law requires virtually all male U.S. citizens (regardless of where they live), and male immigrants residing in the U.S. (permanent resident aliens), to register within 30 days of their 18th birthday. Therefore, to be in full compliance with the law, a man turning 18 is required to register during the period of time beginning 30 days before, until 30 days after his 18th birthday—a 60-day window.
Late registrations are accepted, but not once a man reaches age 26. Men who do not register within the 60-day window are technically in violation of the law and should register as soon as possible."
