Annual Fund


Aiming For the Future

Granada Preparatory School started an amazing journey last year as two schools came together on one trajectory: providing a warm and inclusive International Baccalaureate learning environment where students can grow and succeed not only in their academic endeavors but in their future lives.

The IB program continues to gain awareness in the community as families search for an engaging education that teaches skills focused on real life application. We see the difference in our graduates as they become leaders in their high school communities; enter into college with a strong sense of who they are; and approach their futures with open minds, kindness, and a belief that they can make a difference in the world. 

GPS is Aiming for the Future of our students by providing the high-quality, vibrant GPS IB education that your children thrive on. The GPS experience depends upon the generosity of our school community. Envision your children’s joy when they experience the extras made possible by your contribution. Your donation will be directed at supporting the day-to-day operations and the special enrichments that make a quality IB learning experience possible in our classrooms. From the classroom itself, to the campus as a whole; from the teacher in the classroom, to our students’ experiences, your gifts are targeted at making a difference every day for every student.

The 2021-2022 GPS Annual Fund will have a more immediate impact on our community than ever before.  With your help we aim to hit three targets:

  • offering additional on-site enrichment programs both in the classroom and school-wide,

  • making much needed improvements to our basketball backboards to allow our younger students to play,

  • providing faculty professional development to better serve our students and deliver an outstanding Preschool through 8th grade IB education.


This year we are aiming for 100% participation from families, faculty, trustees, and staff. When we all pool our resources, we can achieve great things. Please consider making a contribution of any size, big or small, as all gifts are meaningful to GPS. Additionally, check with your employer to see if they offer a matching gift program which can be used to double or sometimes triple your gift. 


There are many ways to give.

  1. Send or bring in a check made out to Chatsworth Hills Academy (our parent company).

  2. Send or bring in the Annual Giving Fund donation form that was sent home.

  3. Donate on-line through Smart Tuition 

Your generous participation, in whatever measure you are capable of, ultimately benefits your student and the high quality IB education that GPS offers.  We believe in the path we have mapped out for GPS and hope you will join us on this exciting journey as we Aim for the Future.
