What is ALP?

The Middle School Advanced Learner Program serves approximately 600 students at GCA in 6-8th grades. The goal of the Advanced Learner Program is to provide an individualized learning experience that addresses the unique needs of a student who is advancing educationally at GCA and requires additional opportunities to meet the educational and emotional needs of this unique population of students. Our flexible model for services enables us to meet the needs of any and all students who demonstrate the need for academic challenge beyond the regular education curriculum whether they are identified as gifted or not.

Teacher Spotlight

Kristen Stone - 6th Grade

My name is Kristen Stone and I am the 6th Grade ALP ELA and Social Studies teacher. I have taught for 15 years and this is my 3rd year at GCA. I love being able to teach from home and make connections with so many people around the state of Georgia! My husband’s name is Matt and we have a 7-month old little boy named Jackson and a 5 year old little dog named Barkley. We love to travel to the mountains, Disney World, and everywhere in between! I also love to read, watch movies, and bake whenever I can. We live in Hinesville near Savannah, Georgia.
