About Our School
The Coastal Georgia Comprehensive Academy is a special education school whose focus is to educate students with severe emotional/behavioral disorders, as well as students with moderate to severe autism. We serve students ranging from pre-kindergarten through high school. CGCA was founded in 1971.
Our teachers and staff are entrusted with the great responsibility of providing a quality education to our students in a nurturing and therapeutic environment. This vision is built upon a foundation of investment and trust in which students are encouraged and supported to grow both academically and emotionally. Through establishing this relationship with our students, we are able to provide them with opportunities to grow and develop. This mindset also better prepares our students to deal with the inevitable adversities and roadblocks that they will encounter during life. By supporting them through difficult academic and emotional times, our students will learn and grow and then be empowered to face future challenges. In recognizing the unique and varied needs of our learners, we strive to encourage our students and engage them in their own education so they are able to realize their true potential.
