The Parents' Corner includes links to the school's weekly communications (such as iFYI and WAGs) as well as order forms (lunch, Booster Club items, etc.) and schedules.

Capital Campaign Update (Nov. 21)

Thanksgiving vacation is here! We have completed the longest stretch of the school year without a break.  A week of rest is well-deserved! 

As we reflect on giving thanks, we number Geneva among those things for which we are most thankful. Geneva has given our children so much:

  • A preparation that readies them to handle the academic, moral and ethical  challenges they will face in college;
  • A rich curriculum that equips them to surpass us educationally (even by Logic School!);
  • Godly men and women who not only instruct but advise and model a life of faith;
  • Freedom and protection to develop into the men and women God designed them to be through the unique experiences offered at our school.

Our children are not the only ones who benefit from this amazing place.  We parents have benefit as well through:

  • A community of like-minded people with whom we have raised our children and who have supported us when things were hard;
  • God’s faithful answer to prayers offered on behalf of many people on this campus;
  • The love and support that comes with being members of the Body of Christ.

Last night, we were reminded of what a special place this is as Geneva’s Board of Trustees met for many hours, wrestling with the Capital Campaign and the plans for the new Rhetoric School buildings, Grammar School campus, administration building, library, dining hall, and faculty endowment fund.

We have raised almost $2.6 million dollars for which we are deeply grateful.  (For a current giving report, see the document linked below). However, the $2.6 million falls far short of the $4.2 million we need to start the projects, and even farther short of the $10.5 million we need to complete them. Last night’s board meeting had the potential to be discouraging and difficult. Instead, it was joyful and filled with faith. The school’s board is unanimous in its desire to trust God and wait for Him to show His plan for the school. One board member summarized the mood and perspective well: “God is bigger than any project. He has led our school this far, and He didn’t bring us here to drop us.”

The board will have to make a decision in early 2015 about whether to proceed with construction, wait a year or consider other options. If you have not yet made your pledge to the Capital Campaign, it would be extremely helpful for you to do so now, as we prayerfully decide these next steps.

May each of your homes be filled with joy and thankfulness this holiday.  Geneva’s board, faculty and staff feel that God has called each of us to give cheerfully and sacrificially to this Capital Campaign.  We ask you to prayerfully consider whether He is calling your family to do the same.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Autumn Dawn Galbreath (MD) & Robert Thornton, Capital Campaign Co-Chairs
