How it Works
GSC provides homeschoolers with the opportunity to take classes in a traditional campus setting for a few days each week. Classes will be held in the classrooms of Holy Trinity Church on Amelia Island.
#1 GSC students attend classes on campus three days each week
(Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday), from 8:15am-2:45pm.
*Sometimes tests and quizzes will be given online at home on Fridays. Also, Algebra and Geometry classes will have an online component on Wednesday mornings.
The students attend their homeschool classes on Wednesdays, Fridays, and other times at their parent's discretion.
#2a GSC middle-school classes are focused on language arts and mathematics studies. Students will do a lot of writing, grammar work, presenting, and thinking in a fun (but traditional) atmosphere. The classes are led by a prepared teacher and will have occasional homework, quizzes, tests, and projects. The language arts and mathematics classes are all held before lunch.
#2b GSC offers high-schoolers a full course load with all of the traditional subjects included. The schedule will be more rigorous than the middle-school schedule, and there will be certain online components. Click here for more information.
#3a After lunch GSC middle-school students have the chance to attend informal classes and study various revolving topics. We'll do science experiments, learn about poetry, study historical events, etc. These classes are designed to be fun and useful, and to cover information that everyone should know. There will also be a study period during which the students can read historical fiction or books assigned by their parents.
#3b GSC high-school students will not have informal classes in the afternoon. We'll keep working hard!
#4 GSC is an educational resource center. GSC is not registered as a private school in Florida. All students must be registered as homeschoolers with the county and follow the state requirements for homeschooling.
#5 At GSC, we see our role as being a resource for the homeschooling parent to use in the education of his/her child. The parent is still in charge of the student's homeschool education.
