It is my pleasure to welcome you and your family to Georgia Cyber Academy (GCA)!
Thank you for choosing to enroll your children in our school. As a mother, I am well aware of the huge responsibility you have placed with our administrative team and faculty, and we are truly honored by the trust you have demonstrated in us. Our number one goal is to ensure that our students obtain the necessary academic skills and knowledge to be successful in all their future endeavors.
The staff of GCA is highly skilled, extremely committed, and dedicated to the well-being and academic success of all our students. In partnership with our Learning Coaches and community, we help our pupils build a firm academic foundation to support them in reaching their goals. Our teachers and administration have high expectations for our school, our students, and ourselves and strive for continuous improvement and positive growth each and every day.
GCA provides our students with the opportunity to study and learn in a safe and familiar environment of their choosing, while pursuing personalized education paths. We serve all students and are committed to meeting them where they are and providing the supports they need, including special education services and language supports, while removing the obstacles to continuous forward progress for our advanced and gifted students.
The reasons that our students choose a virtual education are varied and include but are not limited to medical necessity; the opportunity to earn more flexibility in their schedules; the prospect of additional time to pursue their personal extracurricular interests; personalized educational pace and rigor; our dual enrollment partnerships with more than 30 colleges and technical schools; a full catalog of advanced, honors, and AP® courses; and the desire for a familiar, safe, and bully-free environment. Regardless of where our students reside, their economic situation, or the personal challenges that might limit their academic options, we provide a powerful education option for students throughout the state of Georgia.
Every aspect of our program has been constructed to provide a framework in which our students can build upon their knowledge, skills, and unique abilities to realize their fullest academic potential. GCA's environment is structured to minimize distractions and stress, while instilling a good work ethic, positive character qualities, self-motivation, and self-confidence in our students. Our unique approach also allows students the opportunity to develop soft skills such as time management and organizational skills beyond that of their peers as they matriculate through our grade bands. At GCA, we are privileged to enjoy this unique education environment, so that our students may flourish and succeed in all their endeavors, both personal and academic.
We hope your family’s experience at GCA will be enriching and fulfilling, and that we will enjoy the opportunity of educating your child for many years to come!
On behalf of the entire GCA staff and community, best wishes for a great school year!
GCA Head of School
