Why Charter Schools?

Charter Schools are public schools that are usually separate and distinct from the local public school district. It is common to see teams of education professionals, parents and often community or business leaders create charter schools.  This gives them flexibility in shaping the school, its curriculum, instruction, staffing, budget, internal organization and much more. Charter schools offer opportunities for students to have the structured environment necessary to learn, creating a promising future for your child.

Gulf Coast Charter Academy South (GCCAS) is an approved Charter School with The School District of Collier County. GCCAS serves Kindergarten through 8th Grade students, regardless of their zoned location.
