Authors' Teas

One of our favorite GVP traditions is our quarterly Authors’ Teas, where students showcase their learning in a performance for community members. We invite the public to join us at these events, held on Friday afternoons throughout the school year.

Our 2018-2019 Authors' Teas dates are September 21st, December 7th, March 1st, and May 18th. RSVP for our next Tea on December 7th.

Global Village Welcome Walk

Our annual fall Welcome Walk (previously called the Connecting Communities Walk) is a tradition at GVP that celebrates community building and friend raising. Welcome Walk participants walk the 4.8 miles from Clarkston, where our students live, to GVP in downtown Decatur.

The Welcome Walk is a fun-filled morning for meeting new and old friends, learning about GVP, and sharing music and food… with a bit of exercise thrown in! The event is growing each year, with more than 250 participants and 30 sponsors at our November 2018 walk.

If you represent a business interesting in sponsoring the next Welcome Walk in 2019, we are happy to provide you with a sponsorship packet for more information. Please contact Erin Alred at

A big thanks to those who supported the Global Village Welcome Walk 2018
as a sponsor, a partner, a fundraiser, or a walker!

On November 3, 2018, more than 250 participants joined GVP for our Welcome Walk from Clarkston to Decatur.

Tribute to Education

Each year we celebrate the amazing young women of GVP at our spring gala. The event includes dinner and cocktails, a live auction and paddle raise, and performances by the GVP Ensemble. We were so thrilled to welcome GVP alumna Bertha Nibigira as our keynote speaker at our 2018 Tribute to Education in April. Bertha is one of our first two alumnae to graduate from college! The evening was a huge success, raising over $250,000 for Global Village Project. Thank you to everyone who attended and supported our school during this special event.

Mark your calendars for Tribute to Education 2019 on on Sunday, April 28, 2019. Stay tuned for more details!
