WHAT WE DO!
AS TSL's, WE SERVE
- Displaced Students
GCA participates in the education of displaced students by providing specific support and supplies to help with their education. A “displaced” student is any student who lacks a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence. This could mean that a child is sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing or economic hardship; is living in motels, etc. due to the lack of alternative accommodations; is living in emergency or transitional shelters; or is awaiting foster care placement. If you are currently experiencing homelessness and are in need of assistance, please contact our Transitional Student Liaisons, Ja’Net Crayton (email@example.com),
- Migrant Students
GCA participates in the Migrant Education Program (MEP). Migrant students in GCA are also provided additional support and supplies to help with their education. Additionally, please contact your Transitional Student Liaisons for more information.
GCA offers TutorMe which is a free online 24/7 online tutoring service that covers 300 plus areas. This online platform allows students to connect with a live tutor right from their home. TutorMe’s network of over 10,000 verified tutors are ready to help with any academic question, no matter how big or small.
