Our Mission and Values

Inspiring Each Girl

At GPS, our mission and values provide an integral framework that supports every interaction with our students. We believe that in addition to providing students robust and engaging academics and girl-centered social-emotional support, we should also provide an environment that encourages girls to live out the values that will help them meaningfully contribute to the betterment of their families and communities. Each girl learns to focus on who she will become as much as what she will accomplish.
"The GPS community encouraged me to create meaningful connections by always having a fun and open environment to learn and grow as a person."
