Junior High is one of the most formative times in a student’s life.

Students in grades 6-8 are given the opportunity to accept increasing amounts of responsibility and independence in an academically challenging environment. We prepare them for their high school years. Students and teachers work together in a climate of respect and collaborative learning.

Junior High students move from class to class each day and are guided and mentored by subject specialists; most educators in the Junior High have their master’s degree in their respective field of study. It is a learning community where creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration are emphasized. We understand that learning styles are different for each student. Our faculty works with your child to help determine their individual learning style.

Students are encouraged to explore their interests through a wide variety of courses in both academics and fine arts (see Program of Study, PLUS1). Junior High also provides numerous opportunities for students in missions and service. The faculty and administrators in Junior High values each individual and encourages students to take risks and become an active participant in their own education.


Junior High students thrive on exploration. Students question who they are, what they believe about themselves, and what they want to know more about. These questions are the beginning of a lifelong path to discovery. An abundance of different courses provide a platform to launch this discovery.

Village Learning Space

The high mark for us is the individual student. Confident, curious, full of ambition and ideas that are contagious, Junior High students are encouraged to try, to try and fail, to succeed and lead.

Village Learning Space

Students need a place to belong, a place to make worthwhile contributions, and a place to make a difference. The Junior High at GAC fosters and facilitates these opportunities for its students.
