GCA is a Seventh-day Adventist Christian co-ed boarding high school located in scenic Northwest Georgia. Our mission is to foster an educational environment of excellence where students, faculty, and staff pursue a shared goal: to know Jesus as Savior and Friend, to love God and those He brings into our lives, and to serve the church and society. We endeavor to pursue our mission in the context of a positive Christian environment with shared values that include: spiritual growth, commitment to academic integrity, respect for God, people, and our world, and a healthy, drug-free lifestyle.
Located about an hour north of Atlanta, and an hour south of Chattanooga, Tenn., GCA’s campus is spread out over more than 500 acres just outside Calhoun. The rural setting offers beautiful views of the Chattahoochee National Forest. About 71 percent of the student body lives in the dormitories, and 29 percent live off campus. The school’s enrollment is approximately 250 students, with a student-teacher ratio of about 13:1.
