We have carefully designed our program to meet or exceed all IL standards. We are registered with the IL State Board of Education and are continuing our membership with the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) for next year. We are currently candidates for regional accreditation through Advanc-Ed. Our program is college preparatory and will meet the standards required by most colleges and universities. Our program has the flexibility for students to direct their courses in their final two years toward their college and/or career goals.
Our courses have been designed to provide a challenging but flexible curriculum. We feel you will find that students will receive a well rounded education at GLCA. All GLCA classes are taught from a Christian perspective. Each student in our high school will have access to a certified school guidance counselor to help develop an educational plan to best fit his or her abilities and goals.
