GPA launched with the specific intention of bridging the gap between a struggling public school education and the privileged, private boarding school ecosystem that effortlessly regenerates Ivy League (and other name brand colleges and universities) students. We imagined an example of a new high school education. We began by designing a space that doesn’t look like an institution invested in creating servile students who will transition to office spaces or extinct factories. We then devised a curriculum that inspires students to love learning, find their curiosities and graduate with a 2030 skill set. GPA understands that packets and standardized testing are the norm. We will not back down from those who are afraid of students who think for themselves and find their passions. GPA gets that the future is uncertain; however, our students have the curiosity, creativity, critical thinking, problem solving and social skills that can make them successful in STEM, design,humanities, public policy or any combination of these and emerging disciplines in higher education and beyond.
