Helping students become successful community citizens and leaders is an important part of instruction at Georgia Cyber Academy (GCA). Recently, through the efforts of the GCA Junior Beta Club, this goal has been accomplished by a special club of students and teachers. The National Beta Sponsors and Junior Beta students at GCA have been awarded the National Beta School of Distinction status. This national award speaks highly of GCA’s commitment to academic excellence and dedication to preparing students for college and future careers.

The National Beta Club is the largest independent, non-profit, educational youth organization in America.  Since 1991, the National Beta Club has awarded over $6 million in scholarships. There are more than 500,000 active members and more than 8,750 clubs nationally and internationally so this acknowledgement is no small feat. The GCA Junior Beta Club, with more than 145 members, is headed-up this year by Rebekah Cooper, Misty Kerr, and Becky Malmquist. “This is not the first year our Beta Club has received this accolade, and we look forward to developing our club membership more each year,” shares Ms. Cooper. The National Beta School of Distinction recipients will be publicized at the 2018 National Beta Convention in Savannah, GA this June. Congratulations to the future leaders of GCA!
