Ace Patterson
(AKA Call Me Ace)

His world is an open songbook. From the formative years at GFA to a job at Facebook, music weaves in and out of his life, tying each experience to the next. Rapper, marketer, family man, volunteer, mentor, Patterson sees music as a way not just to fuse together the different facets of his life, but to share them with others. Read more


Being able to push myself academically, as well as being provided with resources to help flesh out what I was called to do really became a training ground for where I am now.

Lauren Telesz

Being a teenager is all about being surrounded by your peers, it is a period of life where you are really figuring out who you are: navigating school, extracurriculars, friends, relationships, and social media. It’s a vulnerable time for anyone, but especially a teen with cancer.


I couldn’t have found a more kindhearted community than GFA. To this day, I still feel the unmistakable warmth and character of this school.

Not a day goes by that I don't think of one of the many memorable lessons learned in my GFA days.
