Curriculum Services

creative mindsetAs of the 2016-2017 school year, all faculty have been training in a rigorous ongoing program called Education Effective Process (EEP). This is a program to ensure all students have a highly effective teacher in their classroom. In addition, we require all educators to participate throughout the year in several professional development trainings that are mandatory. Teachers continue training on half days, weekends, and summer hours to meet specific requirements for the state of Arizona. This specialized training ensures your son or daughter will receive the highest caliber education available in the Phoenix area and support their goals of college and career readiness. This grant originated in Texas, and George Gervin Prep Academy of Phoenix was added for our ability to work collaboratively with other schools. George Gervin Prep Academy is the only school in Arizona who received this grant.


After careful consideration, George Gervin Prep Academy will be closed to students until further notice beginning March 16, 2020, in order to help contain the spread of COVID-19 in our community. During this time, our school leadership will continue to stay updated on the COVID-19 situation in our county, state, and nation.

We want to assure all families and staff that this decision was made only after thoughtful consideration of the facts and the potential impact on our community. We will continue to communicate and provide updates regarding alternative and digital learning for students and timeframe of reopening the school.

Again, GGPA students will not return from spring break next week. We will continue to post updates on our web page, our telephone Smart Call system, Facebook, and Class Dojo.

Thank you for your patience.
