Principal Welcome


The new school year is beginning August 4th. There will be changes to GMC so please call if you have questions. We are beginning a new partnership with Ivy Tech and our evening class will now be located at Ivy Tech East Chicago. This will allow students to be able to take college classes more conveniently and also allow Hammond and East Chicago residents more access to Gary Middle College.

Also, we will no longer be offering a virtual option to students. Students are more successful in person and GMC is focusing on the success of the in-person student. With our student and staff partnership to graduation, we need our teachers to be able to focus their energy on face-to-face instruction.

GMC celebrated 9 High School graduates in June 2022. It is our goal that our 100% in person enrollment will help us double that number. If you need a 100% online option, please apply to GEO Focus.

Again, please call if you have questions.


Mr. Joe Arredondo
