WHAT’S NEW We are in the midst of a learning renaissance, dramatically advancing our academic programs and STEAM learning. We recently added expanded labs, a green roof, solar energy, and floating classrooms, plus classes in engineering, marine biology, astronomy, robotics, and coding. Opening in fall 2017 is a new 1,000-seat performance hall and a tennis academy. GAC’s Learning Excursions Program offers in-depth studies in politics, journalism, geology, and missions service, among others.
