“I knew that this was the school that I needed to take my academic journey to the next level! Throughout my time here at Georgia Military College, I had by far some of the best experiences! GMC opened so many doors for me during my time here and molded me into a person of more defined character”

– Shemar Bryant

“I went to Georgia Military college to get my pre reqs for nursing school done. It hasn’t been easy, and the teachers have always had my best interest and wanted me to succeed. There hasn’t been one time where I had a teacher who didn’t care. I am currently applying for nursing schools in my area to get my RN BSN. If I had to do it all over again, I would still choose Georgia Military College.”

– Courtney Morton

“GMC has really furthered my education especially in Kinesiology and Physical Therapy. Without the help of GMC officials and staff, I do not think I would be able to graduate as early as I am today.  In conclusion, Georgia Military College has really excelled me to greater heights educationally and socially.”
