    Greater Atlanta Christian School Reviews

    We moved from California and had an exceptional "welcome" that went beyond our kids assimilating to a new school and state. The principals and teachers were truly interested in "knowing" our kids and how they best learn. (which, for most kids is "doing" and not simply listening to lectures.) Their curriculum seems to be especially well directed to assure those who are fortunate to be at the school for their K-12 experience. However, even by jumping in as a 5th and 8th grader, our kids thrived more than at any other school they've attended. Each of our kids is good at different things, so the variety of sports, fine arts and academic offerings make it tough to choose just a few! If you are looking for a school where students are valued as individuals and provide opportunities that stretch their abilities, then GAC is the place to choose. If I could rate some of these below higher than 5 stars, I would!

    Greater Atlanta Christian School (GAC) is the best school we've experienced in 3 different states. The academics, athletics and all the various art opportunities are incredible. They recently opened a Young Learners for 6 weeks- 3 years old! All the things rated below can't capture the overall experience since you need to visit and see and sense the campus an its atmosphere.
    Greater Atlanta Christian school is a positive environment. As it is a college preparatory school, this high school (at least the AP route) really does prepare you for college standards. Some alumni friends of mine have said that GACS is actually harder than their freshmen year college courses. Teachers are helpful if you individually make that extra effort to come in before and/or afterschool. Most of what grades are from is homeworks. Punctuality is seemingly more important than accuracy in some classes here. If you don't study, you won't do well. This high school encompasses a progressive atmosphere!
