Location and Entry Requirements
The school was built in Florida, next to Lake George
Entry requirements depend on the grade the student is entering. Our board of admissions goes through all of the applicants and decide on the top 480 students to admit on each of the three levels for the two grade sets.
Learning Environment
The Board of Admissions meet every year on August 4th to make a decision the top 480 student to admit. This process occurs over a series of 4 weeks.

During first week they split the pool of applicants into two groups of k-7 and 8-12. Then on the second week, the admissions team will split the two groups into three levels.

Levels of education placement are bases on all or one of the following: recent teacher recommendation, parent recommendation, required entry exams (for all students K-12), and past grades (if any). The tree levels consist of special need, normal, and advanced or gifted students.

They will then decide on the top 40 in each of the 3 levels for each of the grades to admit to the school. Student that do not make it may apply again the following year.
Students grow up together, create new ideas, form strong bonds together through their achievements and motivate themselves thought their own interests and success.
The school culture developed by the girls at Gymnasium College Prep is made of a growing environment of encouragement and success. Students learn to accept cultural difference, rise to the high level of expectations, and respect each other.
Parent involvement is encouraged for the success of the students and for those that do not have the opportunity of using the dorms.

Although is discouraged for students in the 8-12 grades who are preparing for the real world.
