Message from the Principal

GAU Group of Schools celebrates its twentieth anniversary this year. With each passing year we have become stronger and more successful. GAU Group of Schools has firmly established its position amongst the schools in North Cyprus as a centre of excellence in education. The reputation and the academic success of our institution has continued to grow and flourish. Our curriculum now includes a wide range of IGCSE subjects including Economics and Physical Education in addition to our regular Science and Arts subjects. With each passing year our levels of success are improving with 100 % pass rates (grade C and above) in Maths, Information Technology, English, Art and Design, and Turkish. We have further developed AS and A level courses for our students. I am proud to say that Girne American College now provides a truly diverse and international education.

Extra Curricular activities continue to play an important part in the life of our school. Our sporting successes in Basketball,Fencing and Swimming have been proven over the years. We also gained many successes in the Telsim Freezone Inter-School Music Competiton which is held annually.

At GAU The American College we acknowledge that each of our students has different needs and talents. Our aim is to provide all of our students with the opportunity to grow and develop mentally, physically, emotionally and socially.We are fortunate to have a very talented student body who have developed the self confidence to perform in public. This is largely due to the encouragement and dedication of our staff. The staff at our school work closely together and there is a real sense of team spirit. Our teachers are dedicated and committed professionals. Students can always find a member of staff if they need extra help, advice or just a friendly ear to listen to their problems.
