In order to become life-long learners, GCA students are encouraged to take advantage of educational opportunities not only in the classroom, but also beyond the borders of our school building by applying classroom knowledge to real life situations. In addition to local opportunities in the Greenwood and Indianapolis areas, students at GCA have two key opportunities to expand and apply their learning beyond the walls of our school, beyond the borders of Indiana and beyond the borders of the United States.
