Yes!  We provide transportation to and from the 2 base high schools twice daily.  Students taking GICCA classes for 1st and 2nd block will go to their base high school first thing in the morning and then will ride the bus to GICCA. They will return to their base high schools for lunch. 
Students taking GICCA classes for 3rd and 4th block will ride the bus to GICCA right after lunch and then will return to their base high schools in time to ride their regular buses home.  
All courses taken at GICCA count toward a college preparatory high school diploma.  In addition, many courses taken at GICCA receive dual enrollment credit from Coastal Pines Technical college, giving students a jump start on their college careers.  
GICCA is not a Vocational School, many of our Pathways, including Exercise Science, Dental Science, Patient Care, A/V Technology & Film, Cybersecurity, Engineering, Graphic Arts, Culinary Arts and Agriculture are designed to give students knowledge and experience that will give them a leg up when they continue to pursue these areas at a 4 year college. 
Other Pathways, like Carpentry, Electrical, Welding, Automotive Repair and Collision Repair are designed to allow students to go straight into the workforce upon graduation.  However, students can elect to continue their education at a 2 year Technical College like Coastal Pines Technical College and any dual-enrollment credits they earned at GICCA will transfer to the 2 year Technical College.  In addition, they may still also elect to attend a 4 year college like the College of Coastal Georgia.  
We have many homeschool and private school students who attend GICCA.  Students will need to be partially enrolled in Glynn County Schools to be eligible to attend here.  Contact us at 912-280-4000 so we can explain the process.
