GFA Annual Fund
The World We Build Together at GFA
Education is an act of world-building. At GFA, we believe our charge is to engage and mentor students in the hard work of shaping their own worlds. We tap into the joy of learning and the wonder of curiosity. We challenge them to dream, embrace new ideas and develop their own, then share them with the world. At every step of the journey, our community rises to meet students where they are and challenge them with new academic, athletic, artistic, and social-emotional benchmarks. Together, we develop minds that are ready for big visions and the successes that await them. Join us in supporting the GFA Annual Fund and the world we build together.
