GSAA

Georgia School of Academics and Athletes

Mission Statement

The goal and vision of GSAA is to teach and nurture the students' minds while improving their physical build. We will achieve these goals by engaging the students in several academic programs in an excellent classroom environment and on the other hand, we will teach the students how to train their bodies and to stay in shape.

School structure

GSAA will have three groups of grades: elementary school (K-5), middle school (6-8), and high school (9-12). These groups of grades will have different facilities on the same campus, and they will be taught differently due to their varying maturities. Each semester will consist of four classes each one hour long. The four classes will be the student's choice, but the student will choose the classes from a list available for each grade.

The Bears

GSAA's mascot is the bear and our school colors are red and black. The bear is a unique symbol representing strength, confidence, leadership, and healing. Red represents the school's energy, strength, and power. Black represents the school's elegance, formality, and mystery.

STEM

Our main academic focus is STEM. STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Our students will learn these subjects with varying degrees of difficulty depending on the grade level. GSAA will teach K-12 starting with the easiest courses and the basics.

Athletics

GSAA is offering many after-school sports including football, soccer, baseball, softball, tennis, lacrosse, swimming, basketball, wrestling, track and field, and cross country. GSAA will also require at least one physical education class per grade level each year of enrollment.
