Our Mission

Doing what is best for students … today, tomorrow, everyday.

Our Vision

The vision of GCSC is to remain the premiere educational system providing an enriched academic and multi-cultural learning environment that prepares our students to pursue the accomplishment of life goals. GCSC fosters a high-quality education in a safe and orderly learning environment that ensures the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and values necessary to be productive and responsible citizens in a global, technological society.

What We Believe

Educating students is vital to the sustainability and growth of the community.

Educational excellence and opportunity require committed students, teachers, administrators, parents, and school board members.

Mutual respect and support is expected from teachers, staff, administrators and students.

Learning occurs best in a safe, orderly and secure environment.

Student Care

We strive to provide all children with the care and support they need so they can develop optimally. It concerns the broadest possible form of good and appropriate education for every child. We are committed to providing a happy and safe environment for children to learn in.

Strong. Resilient. Built for Education.

Our eager children have a real thirst for learning and our excellent staff team are committed and dedicated in ensuring that each and every child achieves. We have high standards and expect the best.

Welcome to Gary Community School Corporation. We are looking forward to working together with you and your child this school year.

What makes us the best choice....

We have distributed Chromebooks and Hot Spots to all our students K-12th grade. Eliminating the barrier to internet access and supporting each with the ability to thrive during E-Learning.

We have spent the past few months in recruitment mode. We have great teachers, administrators and other faculty and staff who are ready to deliver the best educational experience for your child!

We have started renovations to our schools through the Bill 1065 to provide safe learning environments for our children.

Beginning this fall, the Gary Area Career Center will boast more course offerings so that our students can be exposed to diverse and unique career opportunities. The school schedules have also been adjusted so that students will no longer have to choose! They can receive their required educational instruction at their home school and still attend the Career Center for additional career-focused programming.

We continue to provide meals to all our students twice a week through our Food Distribution program during E-Learning.

Incorporating thorough cleaning in all our buildings to minimize the risk of COVID-19.
