GPS's Founders established a school rooted in the Christian tradition, and we remain true to that heritage by cultivating in our girls the values of honor, integrity and service. We believe that the development of faith and spiritual growth are vitally important in educating the whole girl—mind, body, and spirit.
The environment at GPS invites curiosity, encourages discovery, and celebrates diversity. Because we want our students to be leaders within a global community, it is important that they be self-confident young women with engaged minds as well as stimulated spirits. Therefore, we encourage and expect our girls to use their voices to articulate their own belief systems and to ask questions about the beliefs of others. We believe that inquiry not only gives a girl a greater understanding of the religious convictions of others but also strengthens her own faith.
Our students come from homes that express spirituality and faith in many ways, and we respect each family's religious traditions. We recognize that the development of a young woman's faith is critically connected to her family and faith community. Our faculty and staff support each girl in developing her own spiritual awareness within the context of a college preparatory academic program.
