GFACS is a community-based school designed to meet the needs of refugee and new American students through English language acquisition and foundational skill study, culturally relevant curriculum and wraparound supports, arts programming, and soccer participation. Every student works as a team member on and off the field to bridge significant gaps in formal schooling to graduate on time and with many earning college credit through dual enrollment.
The core pillars of our academy model are:
- Year-round programming
Integration of soccer for all
Holistic English acquisition
Scaffolded, Data-Driven Small Group Instruction
Relational, Trauma-Informed Approach to Schooling
