We have a strong community of partners:
Agnes Scott College has provided strong support for our organization since its inception, with faculty among the founders of the school. President Elizabeth Kiss sits on GVP’s Advisory Board. Agnes Scott allows our students to eat lunch in their dining hall at a reduced charge and provides our school with a paid work/study intern. Faculty from the Education Department collaborates with our teachers to teach joint classes at GVP and ASC.
Decatur Presbyterian Church is among our strongest and oldest community partners. DPC provides classroom space for our school free of charge.
The Goizueta Foundation has just entered into partnership with GVP with a multi-year commitment to supporting and growing the arts integration and project-based components of our STEAM curriculum.
