COVID-19 Update for Prospective Students and Families:

After saying earlier that masks are optional for vaccinated students and staff, Illinois is now recommending that schools set universal masking rules indoors. The state health department and ISBE warn that if schools do not follow the current guidance that they will be putting the school’s community at risk. Our plan will be announced as we draw closer to the beginning of school September 1. Learn More

From Gold Coast Prep School

Welcome to Gold Coast Prep where the traditional meets the progressive. At GCP we’re looking to provide children with the ability to develop 1) a base of core knowledge, 2) critical thinking and 3) communication skills to prep them for the most selective high schools in Chicago and to be the next generation of C-suite Executive thought leaders and entrepreneurs of tomorrow.

GCP is a private PS-8 school with a classical curriculum and an emphasis on leadership, promoting curiosity for the intelligent student that is bored with a traditional curriculum who thrives being surrounded by curious, like-minded students. Engaged students apply classical learning to real life, with real ‘self driven’ projects.
