Geffen Academy at UCLA partners with our families through our Family Engagement Cooperative (“Co-op”), a dynamic and diverse group of all of our parents/guardians who are uniquely positioned to serve our school community in varying capacities. Participation is not required, but highly encouraged.

Co-op Mission Statement:
Every Geffen Academy parent and guardian is a member of the Geffen Academy Family Engagement Cooperative (“Co-op”). The Co-op thrives on the diversity of talents, resources and personal histories of each member. The Co-op leadership promotes, celebrates and reflects the differences of its members. The Co-op is dedicated to building and sustaining an inclusive community of families who collaboratively share their time and talents in service of the school’s mission, vision and values. 

The Co-op works to fulfill its mission through: 
  1. Working collectively to support Educators in all aspects of academic, athletic, and artistic endeavors; 
  2. Facilitating strong and trusting partnerships among families and Educators; and 
  3. Developing opportunities for connections to be made among Geffen Academy families through clear and mindful communication.
