Global Village Academies

From the Executive Director

The staff at the Global Village Academy Collaborative (GVAC) are extremely proud of the work we do to support the five Global Village Academies in our system. If you aren't familiar with the structure of our support model, please take a moment to read about the partnership between GVAC and our schools. 
 
GVAC is the central service provider for our schools and we exist so that all Global Village Academies cultivate academic excellence, high levels of linguistic proficiency, and cultural competence. We do this by unifying our schools through sustainable instructional and business practices. What does this really mean? As an organization, we provide a myriad of services to our schools that help them be successful. Those services include and are not limited to the following:
 
  • Accounting & Payroll
  • Human Resources and Benefits
  • Marketing & Communications
  • Professional Development for all of our teachers
  • Leadership Development
  • Legal services
  • Support with school buildings
  • Information and Educational Technology support
  • After School Programming
 
We are launching our new GVAC quarterly newsletter to communicate and connect with our families. We want you to understand the connection between the GVAC team and the school that your children attend. In our first issue, you will have the opportunity to review some important data from our 2017-18 Annual Report, meet our Director of Teaching & Learning, Alicia Macica, amongst some highlights from our schools.
 
Thank you so much for choosing Global Village Academies for your child's education. We are proud of our the language immersion model we offer families across the state of Colorado.
 
Yours in Education,
 
Michael Henderson
