Meet Our Principal

Darryl Patteson

Gary Comer College Prep

Hello GCCP Scholars & Families!

Having spent the past 10 years at Gary Comer College Prep, I am beyond thrilled to continue my time at GCCP as your Principal. Whether it has been teaching math, running clubs, developing teachers or being an Assistant Principal, I have found ways to connect with scholars and do everything in my power to improve the experience of all GCCP scholars. I plan to continue on this path, bringing in the voices of scholars, staff and families to make the best possible school experience on the way to and through college. 

I am proud to say that we have 13 GCCP alumni on our staff this year as we seek to create a complete experience where our school is a place that scholars call home even after they leave. We know there is immense power in learning from those who have been in the same seat as you were once in and look to leverage that everyday. GCCP is all about investing in the future of each of our scholars and we have hit a point where the past scholars are now coming back to invest in the next wave of scholars. 

At GCCP, we strive to be the place where scholars can discover who they want to be, where they want to go and always have a connection to their school. We live the core values of Grit, Zest, Optimism & gratitude on our way to excellence!
