GVP is an accredited special purpose middle school serving recently arrived refugee young women aged 11-18 (admitted students must turn 11 on or before September 1). We are a tuition-free private school and provide all admitted students with lunch, transportation, and after school enrichment.
Our admissions goals are:
1) To maintain a linguistically and culturally diverse student body
2) To focus on serving newcomer (less than three years in the US) refugee girls in the metro Atlanta area with interrupted or limited formal education and limited English proficiency.
We provide a high school preparatory curriculum designed specifically for English language learners with interrupted education. Because we are a middle school and focus on preparation for high school, we give admissions preference to students who intend to stay at GVP for 3 years and enroll in high school after completion of our program.
We understand the advantage of having siblings attend school together. However, our program is designed to address the specific needs of newcomers with limited or interrupted education. Because of their age upon arrival in the United States or other circumstances, siblings may have different educational histories and needs. Therefore, we make admissions decisions about sibling groups on a case-by-case basis.
