Gloucester Community Arts Charter School
Gloucester Community Arts Charter School (GCA) is a 240-student, K-8, multi-age, public school that uses the arts and community life to energize the learning of Gloucester’s students. GCA’s graduates are academically accomplished, intellectually curious, and civically engaged. GCA’s curriculum integrates the arts as a common language across all disciplines, while drawing coursework from the rich cultural and maritime resources of Cape Ann. The curriculum blends state standards, integrated subjects and themes, and hands-on experience drawn from five academic disciplines: English Language Arts, Mathematics, Expressive Arts, Science, and Social Studies. GCA was chartered by the MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education in February 2009. The School will open September 2010.
