GCA Counseling Announcements

  • GCA Tutoring Service:
    At the beginning of every semester, we have a sign-up period where tutors and tutees can request to be a part of the program. The tutors go through a training period. We do train tutors and match throughout the semester however it is much more limited as the semester moves along as students have set schedules and responsibilities. The Peer Tutor Program is designed to be a mentorship program where each tutor and tutee is committed to consistently meeting weekly, setting goals, and improving. Please consider this when signing up because once matched we are asking for you to commit to this program for at least a few months.

  • PSAT testing:

    GCA will be administering the PSAT (Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) to all 8th through 11th-grade students on Tuesday, October 26, 2021. Therefore, we are asking that all students register for either the PSAT 8/9 or PSAT 11. Parents can do this by clicking the button on their IC Parent Portal and paying the testing fee (PSAT 8/9 - $14, PSAT 10 - $0, PSAT 11(NMQST) - $20).  If the fee is going to be a hardship, please reach out to your counselor. All students qualifying for free or reduced lunch will receive a reduced rate. Make sure those who are eligible have their paperwork completed.

Important Testing Updates & Resources

Peer Tutoring

  • Peer tutoring is a flexible, peer-mediated strategy that involves students serving as academic tutors. Typically, a higher-performing student is paired with a lower performing student to review academic concepts.

    Tutoring at GCA is student-driven and is meant to help support struggling students, however, if your student needs tutoring in multiple subjects, we recommend that you talk to your teacher and also look for outside help.

    Open Peer tutoring is now available during high school lunch and after school on the following days:

    HS Lunch Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday 11:50 - 12:20 pm (Not Wednesday) in the Cybrary.

    After school Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday 2:20 - 3:20 pm in the Cybrary. Wednesday 1:20 - 2:20 pm in the College/Career Center.
