Our belief at The Academy at GPC is that students learn best when they are able to engage passionately with learning. One’s ability to maximize his or her learning stems from feeling positive about the school environment. Is it meaningful work that I am engaged in? Do I have strong relationships with teachers and fellow students? Am I engaged in activities that nurture a healthy mind and body? The Academy creates a personalized environment that promotes meaningful work with the goal of mastering one’s objectives in the classroom, on the course, and in life. We do this by removing the distractions that the world throws at teenagers today. We recognize that the teenage brain has an advantage over the adult brain because it is still developing and learning. Therefore, we focus on the individual and allow the individual to focus on his or her goals.
