Today Catholic School of Visalia, George McCann begins our Enrollment Campaign: Learn, Lead and Serve.
For over 90 years, GMC has helped students grow spiritually and excel academically by welcoming children into a faith community where they come to know, love and serve God in a safe and secure environment. We offer a quality education from 3 year olds preschool through 8th grade.
Academics are a priority at GMC. We are competitive with local public and private schools and accredited by both the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and the Western Catholic Education Association. Our GMC students score in the top 30% on National Standardized Tests with most classes scoring at or above grade level. We have integrated state of the art technology including chromebooks and tablets into our curriculum.
We want all who want to be in our parish school, GMC, to be here. Tuition assistance is available. GMC opened its doors generations ago for every child from every race and social-economic background-that has not and will not change!
Students who attend GMC are highly successful in high school and college. In a recent survey, 98% of our graduates had earned a 3.5 GPA or higher in high school. Our students go on to colleges and universities including Stanford, Yale, St. Mary’s, Pepperdine, and Fresno State Smittcamp to name just a few.
In the most recent high school graduating class, 94% of GMC students are attending college. The students credit the strong foundation they received at George McCann for their success in high school and college. The Strong Catholic values promoted at GMC help students develop the ability to make good life decisions.
As the only Catholic School in Visalia, GMC is where students learn and live their Catholic faith through daily prayer, weekly Mass, service opportunities and religious instruction.
As parents the greatest gift we can give to our children is to pass on our faith. GMC works hand in hand with parents to teach and live the Catholic faith.
