We provide families $300 per student per semester to participate in additional educational courses and activities such as music or art lessons, physical education, visiting museums, etc.
We are focused on providing students a solid academic foundation of math, English language arts, and science which they can leverage for the rest of their lives. This critical foundation is supplemented with opportunities for elective choices like music, art, computer coding, and other options.
Additionally, our students who live near one of our on-campus schools are welcome to participate in a variety of on-campus activities such as school pictures, field trips, and extracurricular activities, as available. (See a sample extracurricular handbook for the types of things that may be available to students who live near one of our on-campus schools.)
Further, many of our students participate in sports and other extracurricular activities with their local traditional school or community teams.
Students progress from mastering the fundamentals in the elementary grades to completing college courses while in high school—tuition free. By their 10th grade year, students choose from two graduation pathways: 18+ college credits or AA. Please see the school’s page for details about the curriculum.
No. We provide all the technology students use while in school (unless you prefer to use your own).
Because GPO students attend school primarily from home, Gem Prep: Online does not have school uniforms. However school spirit shirts and items with the school logo may be purchased from a variety of online vendors. (See GPO’s web page for links to vendors.)
