GICA – A Glynn County Charter School

Golden Isles Career Academy (GICA) is a public charter school located in Brunswick, Georgia.

GICA presents an approach to learning offering career preparatory opportunities for high school age students and college programs for citizens of all ages across the Glynn County community through our partnership with Altamaha Technical College.

GICA was created to build a growing partnership between the Glynn County School System and the regional business and industrial communities of southeast coastal Georgia. GICA graduates provide a viable skilled workforce to businesses in a variety of occupational disciplines.

GICA is not a vocational school, although our core initiative is to provide hands-on career-driven learning and guidance. GICA's Career Pathways Programs have been uniquely designed to provide essential learning tracks to 18 distinctive career curriculums – some of which are college preparatory focused through the Dual Enrollment Program, where students can actually earn college credit while still in high school.

A Community Learning Center

GICA also supports the Glynn County community as a life long learning center offering adult continuing education programs, through Altamaha Technical College, which provide educational opportunities to those seeking self-improvement and new career horizons.

Preparing a viable work force for the 21st Century!

Whether you are a high school student, a mature adult desiring career change or educational enrichment, or a member of the business community seeking enhancement of your work force, the Golden Isles Career Academy has been created to promote academic achievement and positive economic growth throughout the southeast Georgia Golden Isles community.
