Our art program at GCA is innovative, creative and lots of fun! Students are introduced to the many artistic styles and techniques employed as well as materials and mediums used. Along with hands-on projects, various artists are studied and select works from their portfolio are critiqued. There's never a dull moment in art!
Technical skills are essential in this day and age, and our computer program at GCA strives to equip students with these critical skills. Lessons go beyond simple keyboarding drills, to include instruction in word processing, spreadsheet design and entry, and even graphic design. Younger children use programs on the computer to reinforce basic skills such as phonics, reading, and math while upper grades use logic programs to hone their thinking and reasoning skills.
At GCA, music is greatly appreciated and enjoyed by all. Weekly music classes include instruction in music theory, chimes and chorus. The productions performed by the children throughout the year are a wonderful testament to our music program.
It's hard to define where the instruction ends and the fun begins in PE. Children are immersed in numerous activities that build both strength and endurance as well as camaraderie and sportsmanship. Westside has a large multi-purpose area available for inside instruction and play and the South Gwinnett Athletic Complex, located right behind the school, provides plenty of room for outside training and games.
Spanish instruction begins in the early years, with an exposure to the language, and continues through Upper School as mastery begins. A variety of techniques are used to immerse the children in the Spanish language, helping them comprehend and gain a better understanding. At GCA we believe that an early start helps pave the way for future success.
