Big Dreams Ahead for GA!

GA is a GAme Changer for our students, staff, and families. We are committed to our purpose and our people and serve students from over 40 zip codes.

GA provides an individualized, multi-sensory learning environment for our students in first through twelfth grade. We take pride in personalizing pathways that accentuate students’ gifts and interests while accelerating growth opportunities. A customized, comprehensive, collaborative approach is used to facilitate student-centered learning experiences through hands-on and authentic opportunities that foster problem solving and critical thinking in humanities. Students develop a strong sense of numeracy skills through multisensory mathematics. Explicit and embedded instruction takes place daily in areas of executive function coaching, teaching of coping skills and sense of body cues, and social and emotional regulation awareness. Provided as necessary are speech and occupational therapy services, and the utilization of the Orton-Gillingham approach for students requiring structured literacy approaches. Each student is supported and celebrated by a team of educators who are committed to personalizing instructional experiences aligned to each students’ strengths, talents, and gifts.

In GA, we have a proven program that serves an unmet need in the Central Maryland area. Our current physical space is at capacity with close to 60 students and we continue to experience record demand for the program with well over 130 families submitting inquiries each year for the past two years.

Big Dreams Ahead

In response, GA has launched Big Dreams Ahead! With a goal of $1.8 million, the capital campaign will enable GA to move into our new home that embodies our mission and vision and provides the space for our students to flourish and thrive. With 20,000 square feet the stand alone building will include a range of classrooms, resource rooms, and tutoring spaces, along with dedicated spaces for counseling, science, art, recreation in the gym, and gathering together as a community for meals and events with a multipurpose space that will hold the GA Den, GA Cafe, and stage.

Our Progress

During the quiet phase of our capital campaign, Big Dreams Ahead, GA was able to secure close to $600,000 including a lead gift from The Kahlert Foundation.

Living Our Big Dreams in 2024

We are looking forward to settling into our new home of August 2024. The stand-alone building will not only provide the space to expand our student base to serve 100 students by 2029, but will also enable GA to offer tutoring services to the local community and to serve as a hub for specialized professional development.
