We opened for in-person instruction on April 11, 2021; however, we are also offering all courses on Zoom until California is fully opened in mid-June, 2021. We are continuing to ensure a safe learning environment for all students and instructors.

I spent most of my two years at GPA taking Global Leadership and Take Action workshops. From holding my very own fashion show and overcoming my self-doubts to getting the very inspiration while sitting on the grass bench in the green room to write the essays that got me to where I where I am (Yale - Boola Boola!!), GPA has done more for me than I could express in words. They fully invest their time and efforts to make each and every student that enters through the door a whole-rounded, active global citizen.

COLLEGE & CAREER READINESS
Fostering a new generation of innovators and problem-solvers
We don't propose radicalizing education. We aim to supplement it, enhancing purpose inside the classroom, encouraging earlier career development, and improving potential student outcomes.
Develop skills that are relevant and forward-facing
GPA rebrands education as a means of exploring global issues and learning relevant hard skills, rather than a soulless measure of grades and numbers. GPA rebrands leadership as a way to utilize compassion as a means of helping others and creating value, not as a means of getting more CSF points. GPA rebrands creative passions as something absolutely CRITICAL to the rapidly approaching future of jobs and movements, not a childhood phase that we should grow out of.

We encourage our students to act on their passions and to problem solve.
Preparing tomorrow's leaders
Our rapidly-changing economy and workforce demands a greater mix of skills. We provide the instruction and technology to develop new skills.
Guiding our students towards the future
At GPA, we view high school as an opportunity for exploration. We use your time in high school productively to help you to discover a path that is authentic to your interests and your purpose. Not every student has to assume that they are pre-med or pre-law.
