Mission-Driven Program

Create opportunities to inspire the mind, body, and spirit of our faculty, staff, and students


We will

Serve as an incubator for innovation in teaching and learning.

Enhance a culture of continual professional and leadership development.

Invest in the health and well-being of our students.



THE GFS CULTURE of continuous revelation supports a faculty and staff who see themselves as lifelong learners. We want to provide our imaginative and innovative teachers and administrators with the space and the resources to support their own educational journeys and fulfill their potential for leadership, initiative, and creativity. This enhanced focus will help them develop thoughtful projects and programs that encourage students to be curious, purposeful, and empathetic citizens. Providing support for the exploration and development of teaching strategies, curricula, and programmatic innovation allows faculty and staff to test and implement the new concepts needed as our world, communities, and students evolve.

Just as we support faculty and staff on their professional journeys, we strive to help students realize their fullest potential academically, physically, psychologically, socially, and spiritually. Students spend their childhoods in our lively, intellectually challenging environment, and their well-being is our top concern. Increased support, staffing, and programming will encourage wellness and drive an education and experience that enriches the whole being.

Through programming, facilities, funds, and partnerships, we aim to build the capacity and opportunities needed to attract and retain motivated faculty and staff, support innovation in teaching and learning, and ensure the continued health and well-being of our students.
