Gompers Preparatory Academy gets a new field after 55 years!
For 55 years, Gompers students have played on dirt and rocks for both PE and Varsity Athletics, with dreams of playing on a grass field. Thanks to the hard work of Gompers Preparatory Academy (GPA) parents and the community over the past seven years, a new generation of GPA students will now make this dream a reality.
The new Gompers Field is truly a sight to behold! What was once a wide expanse of bumpy rocks and weeds is now an NFL-grade turf field with facilities for CIF high school soccer and baseball.
GPA students, parents, and alumni have eagerly anticipated the transformation of the field over the past several years. With the arrival of the new turf and the Gompers name in the end zone, many have been moved to tears as they’ve seen the impossible made possible in the Gompers community.
Gompers Field will be dedicated in the coming weeks and GPA students, parents and alumni are thrilled to see this dream come true.
