Teachers and staff at Gilbert Classical Academy encourage their students to achieve the impossible. Because it's such a small school, students are able to connect and develop strong relationships with their peers and administrators. In addition to that, the rigor at GCA is so competitive that it guarantees your child with the best educational experience that's possible, in which will prepare your child for college. Furthermore, GCA has counselors that are always open to talk to about your child's educational career preceding junior high and high school. I definitely recommend for you to consider this school!

Gilbert Classical Academy is phenomenal for education. However, if you're interested in a spirit school or a sports-driven school, this school is not for you. Though sports aren't huge at GCA, it's a school that will provide your child with an exemplary education. The administration is always helpful and friendly; often times, you'll see the vice principle and principle walking around campus and interacting with the students on how they could improve their experience at GC. Again, GCA will provide your child with a great education.
As a highchool senior, my overall experience has contributed to the person I am today, and has very much helped me build relationships with my peers and teachers. The fact that there are less than a thousand kids at this school - which ranges from 7-12 - makes it easier for one to get closer with their class, enhancing the welcoming atmosphere of the school. They focus on preparing for college as well as helping students develop soft skills that can be carried on throughout their lives. They encourage many different academic opportunities for the students - ranging from science competitions, sports, clubs, advanced placement, and a passionate fine arts program. Having a smaller selection of teachers also allows us to become closer to them after being enrolled in their classes for more than one year.
