Parents

We are so proud that you have chosen to trust your student with us at Gould.

We are a family here and it is an honor to guide students towards a life of purpose, excellence, and compassion. Our relationship with parents, grandparents, and other family members is so valued.

Gould is your school as well. This page is designed to be the first stop for any information you might need to keep track of the daily life of your student at Gould. Also, please know you can call, e-mail, or stop by any time!

Our password-protected parent portal MyGould is a great source of information just for parents: calendars, forms, the school calendar, and your student’s official academic record. This is also where you can update your contact information.

  • Gould Parents’ Association

    The Gould Parents’ Association (GPA) is an organization that includes all parents of current Gould Academy Students.  As a parent, you are automatically a member!  
    GPA’s main purpose is to foster community and awareness among Gould parents.  But our parent-driven community is just the starting point: GPA connects with and supports the greater Gould community of faculty, staff, and students.  
    Our goal is to use our ideas, time, and resources to enrich our students’ experiences by collaborating with and supporting the school.  As parents involved in GPA we connect, we share ideas, we volunteer, and we share in our children’s life at Gould.  We hope you will participate!

    We welcome all parents to participate with whatever skills and time they have. Even if you live far from the Gould Academy campus or have limited time, there’s still a place for you!  

    Please join the Facebook group to show your interest.  Whether you help by planning or hosting events, supporting fundraising efforts, supporting athletic teams, or simply connecting with fellow parents, there is a place for you in GPA.
