Its 50th Birthday
|GCA was founded in 1961 by 14 families. It closed its doors in 2012, at the end of its 50th year, having served many hundreds of children and their families.
Even though GCA has now disbanded, former members sometimes ask for a way to contact each other to share memories or to reconnect with the very special former teachers. One way could be to create and moderate a private GCA Facebook group. To do that, we need volunteers. If you would like to help, we can support you.
If you participated in GCA in any capacity, and want to be contacted for any future reunions, send an email with your contact information and when and how you were involved with GCA.
| Reaching out to GCA's former students and their supporters:
We can now offer an alternative for those who wish to keep the GCA spirit alive.
In 2015, Net Learning Center, a non-profit educational and online hosting center, took up the challenge of a group of former GCA participants to support their desire to explore new ways to provide community, including classes and other activities like the ones they enjoyed.
Net Learning Center initiated a project called the Star Thinkers Enrichment Program. This "STEP" project is intended for children whose brains operate in ways that are quick, creative or "out-of-the-box", and who wish to learn and swap ideas with others.
If you are - or know - a child who is a "Star Thinker", watch the STEP link, or get on the mailing list.
