Why Granville?


Thomas D. McGurl

Dear Friends,

Selecting a secondary school is a very important decision, requiring careful consideration. Every school has its own unique strengths, culture and social interactions. Granville is no different. It is truly a place of "golden opportunities." Granville students have an amazing array of academic pathways, athletic opportunities and extracurricular options available to them. We have a highly qualified faculty, dedicated to helping each student succeed at his/her highest level. Additionally, we provide a safe, welcoming environment.

I would like to invite you to explore the many educational advantages that our district has to offer. All schools possess a unique personality, immediately apparent upon entrance. Please consider scheduling a visit. We encourage informative and mutual discussions involving your student's individual needs and how our dedicated and professional staff and resources can fulfill your expectations.

Highlights include:

  • Our 8th grade students may enroll in high school math and science programs, which allow them to begin advanced/college-level coursework (STEM).
  • Our seniors can enroll in Advanced Placement courses; SUPA courses (Syracuse University); and SUNY Adirondack courses, earning valuable college credit prior to matriculation.
  • Vermont residents enrolled in Granville may enroll in Career and Technical Education programs. These programs prepare students with vital pre-employment experience and training.
  • Vermont residents graduating from Granville are eligible for the New York State-resident tuition rate, as well as the Excelsior Scholarship for SUNY schools. This combination results in significant savings for those seeking a post-secondary educational experience.

I encourage you to consider a discussion with me, personally, so I can illustrate how Granville will enhance your student's education. You may reach me at 518-642-1051 ext. 1310.
