It Only Takes One

Each and every girl we educate has the potential to not only change her life and that of her family’s, but also her community and even the world. Your gift helps us prepare our students to be undaunted, and allows us to pioneer an innovative model of refugee education to share with educators globally. DONATE NOW >

Merging Many Worlds

Our 50 students come from 1 of 19 countries of origin in Africa, Asia, and South America, and they collectively speak 26 different languages—from French to Kinyarwanda and Arabic to Karen. APPLY FOR ADMISSION >

Arts are integral to teaching and learning at GVP providing students with ongoing experiences that give them tools to express themselves and learn that creative pursuits are a part of innovative thinking. Music, performing, and visual arts act as a means for students to display their strengths, knowledge and identities. Now, with a recent grant from a generous partner, GVP will substantially enhance its STEAM offering over the next two years.

STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) is an interdisciplinary and integrated approach to 21st century teaching and learning that emphasizes creativity, communication, and collaboration.

Many GVP students have taken up watercolor painting in their most recent Advisory classes. Art has always been an integral part of GVP's model, and this semester students asked to learn how to paint.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) efforts must be undertaken at every level of an organization in order to be successful. Last month, GVP's Board of Directors took part in an interactive workshop on DEI for the first in a multi-part discussion.

The Board's retreat was an excellent example of how we are all on this journey of learning and growth together, and how DEI principles are vital to ensuring we can serve our students and families to the best of our ability.
