Meet The Residential Life Staff

Our caring and responsible staff live among the students in dormitory style apartments, as well as other on campus housing. They are teachers, coaches, and advisors at GFS. They all work together to provide a home away from home as they oversee activities, provide guidance and supervision, and foster positive relationships with the boarding students.  Residential life staff are eager to welcome you into the boarding community and walk alongside your daughter through her years at GFS!
