Garden Street Academy Gets Huge Gift

The Garden Street Academy—a small, independent K-12 school tucked behind the Mission on Garden Street—received a $2 million gift from an anonymous donor this week to fund a merit-based scholarship program. Beginning with the 2011-2012 school year, the program will provide full scholarships for qualified incoming freshman and transfer high school students through the 12th grade. Garden Street Academy, said school reps, employs an academic program based on a liberal arts model, and its high school courses are approved as prerequisites for entrance into the University of California system.
