    What students are saying...

    When I came to GSAA I was welcomed by everyone and it instantly became my home. I've made my closest friends here, and the best memories I've made have been from the many trips. Bringing God into everything we do is what makes Gem State who we are.

    Gem State has definitely helped me open up and expand my comfort zone. The people here are like a family and I love it.

    The thing I appreciate the most is that our teachers are more than just teachers. They're also our role models and mentors.
