Since 2008, the Gahanna Community School academic alternative program has been serving students in grades 9-12.

GCS is a conversion community school program within Gahanna Lincoln High School. Accordingly, GCS students have full access to the numerous and amazing resources of GLHS staff, activities and clubs.

Annually, more than 100 students choose our unique, smaller academic environment to learn and to grow. Students complete the same graduation requirements as any other GLHS student and many are involved with a variety of extracurricular activities. Visit our campus, learn more about us, and share in our successes. To contact the staff here at GCS, please refer to the staff area of the website.
