Middle School Language Arts

The Georgia Cyber Academy (GCA) Language Arts Department provides direct instruction and support for students as they complete their required language arts curriculum. Students are required to complete lessons in literature, GUM (Grammar, Mechanics, and Usage), composition, and vocabulary. Writing is a very important aspect of our curriculum, and students will work to improve their skills through Online Middle School (OMS) lessons, teacher instruction, and use of USATestprep. We have a strong department with many seasoned virtual teachers.
