Picture this: a classroom where your child can't wait to go every day because they're not just learningโ€”they're gaming! Mr. Story's class is like a secret weapon for our kids. They're excited about it because they get to play games, design their own, and even compete in cool tournaments. And get this: it's not just fun, it's boosting their confidence, keeping them engaged, and sparking their creativity. It's like the ultimate win-win for themโ€”and for us! Thanks to vendors EWA and IPC for helping to spark our imagination ๐Ÿ’ก

Our vision: to boost student attendance, academic performance, and level the learning field for students with disabilities through innovative and immersive educational technologies.

This collaboration will not only transform the way our students learn but also provide them with a virtual platform for career exploration. By combining the expertise of GPCA and the gamified learning approach of We Got Game Inc, we are set to create an engaging and inclusive learning environment that transcends traditional boundaries.

Celebrating the journey of resilience and ambition in our GPCA family! In the class of โ€˜22, one of our outstanding students, Tsagai Harris, walked the stage as our valedictorian, marking the beginning of a new chapter. After the ceremony, I had the privilege of speaking with Tsagai's father, who revealed his incredible graduation gift โ€“ a boxing gym franchise for his son here in Memphis! ๐ŸŽ“๐ŸฅŠ I had no idea it was a Floyd Mayweather Boxing gym franchise-the first in West Tennessee! It's not just about a business venture; it's a testament to the strength, determination, and entrepreneurial spirit within our community.

As a proud principal, supporting Tsagai's journey means celebrating the empowerment of our youth. For me, this isn't just about a gym; it's about breaking barriers and fostering dreams in a city with a rich and complex history. GPCA family and friends, hereโ€™s an opportunity to get fit and rally behind this young entrepreneur and showcase the strength of our community. ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’™

Here are highlights of our spirited student-led chapel at GPCA! Wednesday, our 5th grade teacher, Mr. Collins, shared an inspiring message, reminding us all about the essence of Faith, the strength we find in Christ, and the vital role young leaders play in shaping our world.

In our educational journey, it's paramount to recognize and cherish the teachings of the Bible. It not only guides us morally but also provide a foundation for compassionate and wise leadership. Let us always remember and revere the transformative power of Christ's love in our lives and education. ๐ŸŒŸ "


"๐ŸŽถ Exciting highlights from Mr. Claxton's creative arts class at GPCA! Our talented students are diving deep into the world of percussions, mastering the art of vocal music, and getting hands-on experience with studio recording. Creative arts classes like these are not just about learning music but fostering innovation, boosting cognitive abilities, and developing a well-rounded character. Let's champion the profound importance of integrating such educational experiences for our future visionaries! ๐ŸŽต "
