Our History

George Gervin Prep Academy got its start when the George Gervin Youth Center opened its doors in 1991. This nonprofit organization was created to provide innovatively designed, comprehensive, and culturally sensitive services to troubled youth and their families. From that mission came our school.

George “Iceman” Gervin, former San Antonio Spurs player and member of the NBA Hall of Fame, has a passion for community service and assisting youth in their educational needs. With a school and community center in San Antonio, Gervin and his supporters extended their reach in 2012 when George Gervin Prep Academy opened to serve middle school youth in the Phoenix area.

George Gervin Prep is a charter school that serves about 250 kindergarten through eighth graders in south Phoenix. Because we are a small school, we can provide individualized instruction to our students, allowing them to reach and achieve their academic potential.
