Governance

The Geneva School has defined three boards that provide leadership and support to the school in complementary ways: a Board of Governors, a Board of Reference, and an Advisory Board.

The Board of Governors has ultimate accountability for ensuring that the mission, vision, and values on which the school was founded are progressively fulfilled and realized in all areas of school life. The members of this board are responsible for hiring a suitably qualified Headmaster and empowering him (or her) to direct the operation of the school in accordance with these founding principles. Working primarily through its constituent committees, it also oversees corporate governance and finances, and provides leadership for major projects that support the school vision, such as the Legacy Campaign and building projects.

The purpose of the Advisory Board is to engage a more diverse group of (up to 30) people who are prepared to serve the school in their particular area of expertise or experience. The advisory board meets annually and its members are available to the school and the board for consultation and participation in projects or committees. In some cases, the person may represent an organization that is closely aligned with the school’s vision; in others, he or she may simply be an individual who is willing to bring some much-needed resources to bear on challenges that the school faces.

The Board of Reference is made up of (up to 15) individuals who are strongly aligned with the values and vision of The Geneva School, and who have agreed to lend their names and reputations to help promote the work of the school. Their names will appear in school publications and PR material, including the school website, and they undertake to endorse the school in their own circles of influence.

Tuition Rates

For tuition information, please visit the Tuition and Fees page.

Financial Aid

The Geneva School offers tuition assistance to families with students in grades K–12 (students entering K4 and international students are not eligible for tuition assistance).

The Geneva School utilizes the online service of FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment to help determine how much assistance the school will provide to families. In addition, TGS also accepts the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship (FTC), the Florida Empowerment Scholarship (FES), and the Gardiner Scholarship (PLSA) administered by Step Up For Students (students must meet Geneva’s admission requirements and be accepted). A family may submit an application to more than one organization. Parents are responsible for any amount not covered by scholarship and/or tuition assistance. The Geneva School does not accept the McKay scholarship.

Please check the application requirements and deadlines.

Afterschool Care

After school care is offered for lower school students (K4–6th grade) every day after school until 5:30 pm with the exception of early dismissal days when no care is offered at all. Any other exceptions to this will be publicized ahead of time. 

More information about the aftercare program can be found HERE.

Athletics and Other Co-Curricular Activities

Athletics: At TGS, all students—K4 through 12th grade—have the opportunity to participate in sports.  TGS athletes are challenged to practice and play with purpose (to honor God in effort and attitude), with delight (to excel with their God-given abilities), and with respect (towards opponents, teammates, coaches, and officials). Our goal is to manifest Christ-likeness, even in the midst of intense competition, as representatives of TGS, the church, and family.

  • Grammar School: Soccer, volleyball, cross country, tennis, basketball, golf, and track.
  • Upper School: Volleyball, golf, cross country, soccer, basketball, tennis, softball, beach volleyball, track & field, and baseball.

For more information about athletics including coaches and schedules, visit the athletic pages.

Clubs and Organizations: Geneva has a variety of clubs and organizations appealing to students with varying interests. For more information, visit the Clubs and Organizations page.

Parental Involvement

The Geneva School thrives on parent participation. Whether you are a member of our board of governors, coaching a basketball team, chairing a special event, or dressed up for Colonial Day—you are involved. Volunteering at Geneva is a great way to partner with the school. Our field trips and events are spilling over with active, enthusiastic parents.
