Middle Grades 6-8
Middle Grades 6-8
In grades 6, 7, and 8, due dates are assigned to lessons to encourage consistent, steady progress for academic success. Attending teacher-led, direct-instruction, online synchronous class sessions, along with completing coursework, will assist with student success. Middle school teachers work with families to ensure students are progressing academically as expected. To achieve success, it’s in the student’s best interest to follow the pacing schedule that’s assigned by each teacher.
Who is this intended for?
Students in grades 6, 7, and 8 who reside within the state of Georgia.
What is the schedule like?
Our school day begins at 8:00 am and ends at 3:35 pm. Each day begins with Homeroom from 8:00 am until 8:20 am. The remainder of the day is broken into 7 periods that are 50 minutes each and a school-wide 60 minute lunch break each day during the noon hour.
While each student's schedule will vary due to individual needs, on a typical school day most students will attend 5 live teacher-led classes within the 7 period timeframe. Classes include live instruction in English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Physical Education, Health and Art.
Time for independent work, breaks, and completion of assignments is built into each class. Students needing additional support will be invited to attend support or enrichment sessions during the remaining periods as necessary.
What are the costs?
Because we are part of the public school system, GCA is tuition-free. Enrolled families receive a complete, full-time curriculum, school computer, and school printer, and other materials based on grade level. Common household items and office supplies like printer ink and paper are not provided.
