I very much enjoyed the academics provided at GCA, the weeks of prayer that would involve guest speakers, and being able to have extra programs for socializing and game playing.
Improvements I would like to see would be more programs for people who can't get into a sport and have clubs for them, more guest speakers for the church services, they should add more spiritual events rather than just week of prayer which would tie into having more guest speakers, and if the schools overall atmosphere could change it would enrich GCA's experience.
Georgia-Cumberland Academy (GCA) is a school where I learned to grow both in my own character and in my relationship with God. I grew up in and around this high school and it was always where I wanted to go. Coming to GCA was an eye opening experience in which I built lifelong relationships with people and created memories that will last a lifetime. Because GCA is a boarding school, I was able to interact with people from all over the country, and even the world. One thing that I would like to see improved at my high school is the schedule. There is always something going on and it sometimes interferes with activities when you are incredibly involved, as I and many others are. Overall I greatly enjoyed my experience at GCA and it was a time in my life that allowed me to grow and mature throughout the four years.
