Gold Coast Prep, a private, independent PS-8th grade school in Chicago, provides children with a classical liberal arts education that fosters leadership, curiosity, and compassion. GCP students learn to THINK, they think about things they LEARN, they DO things with what they learn and they have FUN in the process. Then, they go on to attend some of the most selective high schools in Chicago!
The GCP Motto – Sapere Aude – Dare to Know encapsulates our philosophy. We want the children to be confident learners and not be shy about exhibiting and using their knowledge – and in the process, develop a healthy sense of self, compassion and friendship towards others, and responsibility to society and the environment.
