Accelerated High School
The George Gervin Technology Center provides a safe and encouraging environment for non-traditional students. At GGTC, we encourage students to critically examine their existing situations and circumstances and to actively participate in setting goals to improve the quality of their lives.
Teachers and staff members work one-on-one with students to determine their needs and identify learning gaps and obstacles to success. Together teachers and students create effective plans that will help to ensure student success in high school and beyond. Throughout their time at GGTC, we encourage and help students to embark on higher education. Well-developed relationships and communication between staff, students, and families are the cornerstone of our success.
