Where does GCA stand on the Common Core Standards
(www.corestandards.org)?

As a licensed school in Nevada, GCA must meet the standards of Common Core. This has not changed the quality of education offered at GCA, because the school was already using an accelerated curriculum, which easily met (and in most cases exceeded) the standards set by the Common Core.
