Active Learning 

Our young students learn by doing, learn by playing, and learn by touch in addition to the traditional classroom setting. GAC's redesigned outdoor space now facilitates all types of learning and growing. 

Outdoor and indoor learning environments collectively support child development. We are developing programs that expand student interest, confidence and retention in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Our Elementary science curriculum is integrated with real world experimentation and hands-on learning.
