Meet our May Family of the Month

Patsy Collins

The Georgia Cyber Academy Family of the Month program recognizes and shows appreciation to one family each month who demonstrates enthusiasm, commitment to learning, positivity, and active school involvement. Families are nominated by teachers and support staff.

The May Family of the Month is the Shaws! The Shaw family consists of David, Jami and Kellan, a fourth grader at GCA. They also have two dogs and four cats, which is "the fewest pets they've had in the last ten years; so you can imagine how chaotic their home can be at times."

"They are an adventurous family and love traveling, even if it's only in their imaginations while playing a tabletop or video game or reading a book. When they can't travel, they bring the adventure to themselves by having themed parties at least once a year for their family and friends. These events include costumes, potlucks, music, races, campfire stories, archery, and even sword-fighting."

"When a friend suggested GCA, the Shaws were thrilled to enroll and have been thankful ever since. The teachers and staff have been wonderful at keeping Kellan engaged and challenged, and he’s learned so much in his time with them. An unexpected joy has been attending all of the cool, virtual events each month."

The Shaws add, "Thank you to the clever and creative teachers and staff at GCA for making learning innovative and interesting."

Thank you so much Shaw family! We are excited that you chose Georgia Cyber Academy. To read more about our previous families of the month, click here.
