In between, you will be blessed by our various student music, drama, and gymnastics groups, as well as other inspirational programming.Look for opportunities to connect with your kids and get to know other parents.

Our October break will begin at noon on Sunday, October 21.

You are part of the GCA family, and we would love to include you in a photo slideshow, and in photo displays during the weekend.Our theme for Parents’ Weekend is also the Student Association theme for this school year – “Charging”. Please email a photo of your family doing something you love, along with your family name, to Nancy Gerard at no later than October 10. We will not be able to use photos sent after that date.
