The mission of GCISC is to create and maintain a learning environment that fosters in students the ability to make choices based upon well reasoned strategies; to develop the capacity to respond and adapt to changing circumstances and worldly environments; to gain an appreciation for learning as a lifelong process and to gain the skills and knowledge necessary for a diverse, ever changing world.

Statement of Philosophy

GCISC will provide the fundamentals of literacy, communication, and mathematical applications for students to succeed in their later studies and/or working lives.  School personnel will partner with parents and the community to maximize resources necessary to provide students a quality education in a supportive and positive climate.  Students will develop global awareness, civic responsibility and critical thinking skills to respond and adapt to the changes of the 21st century.


The fundamental purpose of the GCISC is to encourage each student to develop his/her intellectual, social, and personal qualities in order to participate fully in an interconnected community – be it local or global.

Intellectually, students need to develop:

  • The capacity for learning how to learn
  • The ability to analyze and evaluate complex issues, problems, and events
  • The skills needed to utilize changing knowledge and solving problems

Personally, students need to develop:

  • A respect and acceptance of self
  • A commitment to individual integrity and responsibility
  • Respect for the fundamental moral values necessary in a multi-ethnic world

Socially, students need to develop:

  • A commitment to democratic principles
  • Respect for individual and cultural differences
  • A capacity for empathy



The primary purpose of GCISC is to prepare each student to learn, grow, and thrive in the 21st Century. To accomplish this, the administration, faculty, staff, and community work together to provide opportunities for student growth. Through an integrated curriculum, students are given opportunities to acquire knowledge and skills that will develop their potential as active life-long learners.

All GCISC Students will:

• Solve problems using creative and critical thinking

The Information Technology Department (IT) has operational, strategic and fiscal responsibility for the innovation, implementation and advancement of technology at the College. Divided into three main areas, (1) Network Administration & End-User Support, (2) Instructional Services and (3) Information Systems, the IT Group is customer-centered and driven by its commitment to students, faculty and staff. IT services include the wiring, installation and maintenance of all telephone, computer network and alarm systems, in addition to the installation and support of standard software applications such as e-mail, word processing and spreadsheets. The Department supports many mainframe applications and coordinates workshops in the use of these programs, the Internet and other technology programs. The Information Technology Department is also responsible for the staffing and maintenance of all public Academic Computing labs.

The IT Department will continue to pursue:

  • the use of information technology to enable a time and location-independent, learner-centered environment where learners will be able to access course content, obtain advice and guidance and access student services using a variety of methods, including those mediated by information technology;
  • a network-centered computing environment, where all information services will be seen as standard network services originating from a single source; and
  • the continued testing of a mobile and wireless computing environment, where all members of the BCC community will be able to access network services from anywhere, at any time, both on campus and off.


Great Cornerstone Int'l Science Schools offers full boarding to students. This makes for an interesting student body where friendships can be forged with classmates from a variety of places. Great Cornerstone Int'l Science Schools provides a home for students from all over Nigeria and from elsewhere. We are strong advocates of boarding, believing it to be an important contributor in the creation of academic and social excellence.

The boarding houses are designed to provide a welcoming home for our students and all hostels offer excellent facilities for comfortable living as well as providing a suitable environment for a balanced pursuit of study and recreation. Students' academic work is supervised, and many activities are arranged during weekends and evenings to keep students busy.


In most cases boarding school life will be a rich and rewarding experience for our students. Many parents who have experienced these themselves recognize the value of boarding, and opt to send their children to boarding school. Self-discipline and respect for others are two important attributes which close living and learning develop. Students often form relationships which will remain with them for the rest of their lives. It is an important objective at Great Cornerstone Int'l Science Schools to provide all the security and freedom required for each individual to develop to his or her own natural limits. The resources of the school are available to the students outside school hours, and there are opportunities for a wide range of activities.

At Great Cornerstone Int'l Science Schools we aim to ensure that students are truly benefiting from the boarding experience. Parents can assist us by discussing with their children what it means to be a boarder prior to their arrival at school.


Boarders stay at school during the week and at weekends, but are allowed to spend the weekend home or with friends twice per term, and half term breaks when all students are required to go on leave.

All of the boarders live in one of the two boarding houses. Each is run by a resident Housemaster or Housemistress, a Resident Deputy, and a Matron, all of whom live in. This team is at the heart of the 'family feel' that exists in each house, with staff knowing the students well, ensuring they are there to give plenty of support and guidance, as well as being in regular contact with the parents. The houses themselves are comfortable and homely, geared to provide the right atmosphere and facilities to meet the needs of growing and developing teenagers.
