Lucy Killea’s Legacy


In Memoriam Lucy Killea (s)

Dr. Lucy Killea served in the California State Legislature from 1982 to 1996. It is with a heavy heart that we mourn the loss of such a strong supporter of the Visual & Performing Arts at GPA.

In honor of Lucy, we created a tribute montage to celebrate her and all the gifts she has given to Gompers Preparatory Academy.

High Schoolers Receive Their Acclaim at Honor Roll 2017



This week, GPA celebrated the hard work and dedication of its #collegebound students from Grades 9 through 12 – with the 12th Graders receiving their own special ceremony. It is with great pride that we commend our young Eagles on their academic excellence for Semester 1 of the 2016-2017 school year. Congratulations to everyone who made Honor Roll this year!


Class of 2017 Wing Ceremony

Twelve years ago, this community dreamed of creating a school where all children who attended would have a college-prep education, resulting in a place where dreams really do come true.

For the past 7 years, our Seniors have followed their yellow brick road. The result is that today, a record-breaking 98 Seniors out of 113 have earned their wings to fly to college – 87% Seniors have already been accepted to a 4-year university!

They have earned their wings to fly off to over the rainbow and into a land where their dreams will come true – college. We honor our 98 seniors as they enter the auditorium for the last time.

March 1 is GPA Founders Day!

Founders Day header-01

Gompers Preparatory Academy (formerly Gompers Charter Middle School) was founded on March 1, 2005, when the San Diego Unified Board of Education unanimously approved our charter school petition.

To honor the vision and dedication of the founding students, staff, parents, and community members, March 1st is an annual school holiday, so there will be NO SCHOOL this Wednesday. Throughout the week prior to Founders Day, students will be involved in activities to learn more about the history of GPA and express gratitude to those who have given so much to make the GPA dream a reality.

Be sure to take a look at our history and visit our Founders page here!
