    The goal of the GCPS Community School program is to extend education and recreation to the community.


    Here within GCPS Community Schools, students are respected as individuals and are encouraged to develop at their own pace. If you have a natural curiosity about the world around you and are eager to learn, you may wish to attend one or more of our many available programs. The GCPS classroom environment provides a learning experience where students are free to learn through the use of well designed course materials with the help and guidance of a qualified instructor.
