I have been in many different school models and this one is by far the best! I will definitely choose this one for my daughter when the time comes! I have experienced public school, private school, boarding school, and homeschool. I have been a student and a teacher in all these types of schools. University model schools combine pros such as close community, friendships, strong family ties, high quality education, independence, and flexibility, while being cheaper than most private schools. They allow students freedom to pursue many interests in their time outside school. GCA has done a wonderful job of setting up a climate that is conducive to students learning no matter their background or abilities.
