Senior Talk 2016

School Director dances his way to Class of 2016 Graduation!

Director Vincent Riveroll of Gompers Preparatory Academy will stop at nothing to ensure that his 6th through 12th grade students experience JOY every day that they are in school.

Once a failing school plagued by violence, low attendance and low achievement, GPA is now a thriving college prep academy that is recognized for 100% senior graduation rates and 100% college enrollment. This could not have been done without the incredible, innovative talent and leadership of Director Riveroll.

The video below, which was the kickoff to this year’s senior graduation ceremony, exemplifies Director Riveroll’s heart, humor and creative talent – all of which are at the heart of GPA’s JOY factor, and secret to the school’s success.

Congratulations, Class of 2016!

Gompers Preparatory Academy is very proud to announce the Commencement of the Class of 2016 at the Joe & Vi Jacobs Center!

The GPA Family will celebrate our 5th graduating senior class with breaking records! 109 out of 123 have been accepted to a 4-year university. 46 students have been accepted to UCSD on a full scholarship. ALL 123 seniors will graduate this Friday!

Seniors, it has been such an honor watching you grow throughout the years you have been with us at GPA. From Eaglets to Eagles, your hard work and dedication has paid off. Your time has come and you earned it! Congratulations!

You can watch the graduation show with our public LIVE stream! The live stream will be available here on our website at 2:00 PM PST. The show will start at 3:00 PM PST. Be sure to refresh the page if the live stream stops working.
