We offer flexible scheduling that allows more non-traditional students to attend our school. We meet during the evening hours from 4:30 pm to 9 pm M-Th, and Saturday from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm.
Each student is paired with a Student Support Specialist, who meets regularly with the student; they develop an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP) for each student. It is through this close relationship that we are able to keep the student fully engaged in their learning.
The ILP includes “wraparound” support services, the goal of which is to remove any barrier that might get in the way of the student completing his/her education. We even offer child care for those students who need it.
Our instructional model is the “blended learning” approach. We combine online learning with “face-to-face” teaching by Indiana certified teachers. Our curriculum is rigorous and is aligned with the National Core Curriculum Content Standards.
Our individualized instruction proceeds at the student’s pace, offering: 24/7 access to learning (if needed we will supply students with a laptop that they can use at home), one-on-one and small group instruction from teachers, and the ability for students to accelerate the time over which they earn high school credit.
Our students graduate with an Indiana Core 40 high school diploma and up to 60 college credits. We partner with Ivy Tech Community College and, beginning in their second year, students may take some college courses at the Ivy Tech campus.
GMC pays the tuition for college courses and the courses are “dual-credit” (meaning they count towards the student’s high school diploma as well as for college credit). While taking the Ivy Tech classes they continue to be our student and they continue to receive our help and support, so that they will be as successful in their Ivy Tech courses as they are at GMC.
