The high school program provides rich and varied opportunities for learning and excellence in academics, arts, and athletics, along with applied and practical learning through lab studies. The academic program emphasizes quality over quantity and depth over breadth within the context of core academic mastery, where there are things students need to know (salient knowledge) and things students need to know how to do (essential skills). The academic program prepares students for intellectual, creative, and ethical achievement and leadership, as they go on to lead meaningful and purposeful lives. Critical and analytical thinking, creative problem solving, fluent written and oral expression, cultural and global literacy with self-knowledge, community engagement and ethical citizenship, and individual excellence in mind, body, heart, and spirit, the hallmarks of a GCS high school education.
