For over thirty years, Betty Googe taught and led at Valwood School, inspiring a generation of students and teachers with her compassion, wisdom and unwavering commitment to high academic standards. The impact she had on the school and on all of the students and faculty who came to Valwood to learn and work each day during her tenure is nothing short of profound. It is in honor of this legacy that the Betty Googe Academic Scholarship program was established.
These half-tuition merit scholarships are available to a limited number of middle and upper school students who have demonstrated high academic achievement and strong character. Individuals who will at graduation, as Betty Googe encouraged, “inspire and serve others and explode outward the boundaries of what is achievable on this earth.”
Googe Scholars whose ongoing work demonstrates a continued commitment to high achievement and integrity are able to retain their scholarships through to graduation. Donations fund the Betty Googe Scholarships and allow Valwood to pass on Betty Googe’s love of learning. We appreciate your part in continuing her legacy of academic excellence.
We invite you to explore Valwood through our website, but the best way to learn more about our school’s mission and approach is to visit us. We hold admissions coffee-and-tour sessions monthly where you will learn about our curriculum and extracurricular programs, and you will also be able to see first-hand our beautifully designed, state-of-the-art facilities.
