Greater Atlanta Christian (GAC) School in Norcross has again been recognized as an Apple Distinguished School for 2017-2019. The school has been recognized every year since 2010 for its transformative integration of technology for students’ benefit. Apple recently said, “We believe Apple Distinguished Schools are some of the most innovative schools in the world. They are centers of leadership and educational excellence that demonstrate our vision of exemplary learning environments.”
GAC students in grades 4-12 each have a MacBook Air to create, collaborate and investigate. Younger students, grades K-3, use iPads and a variety of educational apps. Today’s students now craft interactive multi-media presentations in all subject areas, take on research projects and collaborate with others locally in Atlanta and peers across the globe, to share their work.
“We see the Apple Distinguished School designation as an external confirmation of the great things GAC teachers are accomplishing. They are incredibly adept today in educational technological thought and best practices that are taking our students further,” said GAC President Dr. David Fincher. “What an honor to be recognized for the forward-thinking practices of our faculty,” he continued.
Nationally-recognized as a premier Christian institution, Greater Atlanta Christian is a PK-12 independent school in Norcross, Georgia, offering top-rated academics, fine arts and athletics, in an environment that builds character and faith, with joy and purpose.
