GEHS has a Scholars Academy for 10th and 11th graders, College Prep Academy (CPA) for seniors and Online Learners Academy (OLA) for overage students who need to work to support their families, and/or students who are parents or students who have medically-related circumstances. The CPA includes a 10-week college immersion program.
