Glynn academy is filled with tremendous history. Did you know it is the second oldest school in Georgia? Dating back to 1788, my school was established not even a year after the constitution was ratified! I have truly fallen in love with Glynn academy, the open campus and multiple builds have created an almost college like campus with beautiful aging oaks towering over the grounds. Another huge positive is the competitiveness and opportunities you have here that encourage you to strive to do better. There are more AP classes available then you could possible take during your 4 years at the school. The only downside I could think of is due to the age of the school the classrooms are beginning to breakdown. Thankfully several of the buildings are being renovated and in the near future all of them will be restored to their formal glory.

I can see an big improvement with Glynn Academy since I graduated there in the 90's. They have remodeled some of the buildings and are currently replacing the science building. They have made it a lot safer as well by installing a fence. There is a strong campus police presence. My daughter has had some really amazing teachers while at GA. They offer all kids of opportunities from AP classes to online classes, dual enrollment , honors classes and regular classes. Tons of extracurriculars activities including the arts, sports teams and clubs.
Glynn Academy really tries to accommodate to all students needs even though there is a lot of diversity. Teachers are always there to listen and help you no matter if it tutoring or you just need to talk. They do not just care about sports like other schools but they support the arts and music and acknowledge when the drama, band, or choir goes to competitions. Test scores are one of the most important things. They have many events that they hold to inform students and parents about different college opportunities and scholarships.
