Creating a strong teaching bond with students over the online platform is difficult, but GCA proved that it can be done. Teachers were determined to help their students succeed, implementing many teaching styles and supplements for us to use. Students who worked hard and cared about their education easily succeeded. I enjoyed taking charge of my own learning schedule. I strongly believe it prepared me for college better than traditional schools would have allowed. In terms of socialization, I was provided with opportunities to meet other students at in-persons events, activities, and clubs. I made lifelong friends and memories at these events! Overall, GCA pushed me to be better in every aspect of my education. I am now a determined, hard-working student and employee. I would suggest GCA for any student who cares about their education.

Georgia Cyber Academy is, put simply, not a good school. Any success you achieve academically is completely outweighed by how hard it is to actually get "involved" at GCA. Clubs, while numerous, are not advertised AT ALL. It is literally up to you to get involved, which you will almost definitely have to do OUTSIDE of school.

With this recent school year, all flexibility for GCA students is essentially gone providing you are not performing well in class. I personally haven't found this troublesome because I actually do well in my classes, but kids who struggle with school or have learning disabilities will spend upwards of six hours on schoolwork a day. That is too much to demand; especially from an online school.

From my experience, there are just as many really good teachers at GCA as there are awful ones. It's really a coin-toss.

Take your kid elsewhere!
I was home schooled up to eighth grade; for high school my parents chose to enroll me in GCA. For me, the transition wasn't terrible because I was used to being responsible for my work already. I was the second graduating class of GCA, so at the time I was enrolled there wasn't many clubs/sports teams near my area. This was a drawback, but I hope they have improved since then! Otherwise, it's a great school. The teachers cared and encouraged me. If I missed a "live" class, or if I wanted to review it at a slower pace, then I could access the recording.
