The GCS Education Foundation was established in 1996 by a group of private citizens working closely with the Greeneville City Board of Education and the Greeneville City School System administration as an independent, non-profit organization which advocates for a strong system of public education. The mission of the Education Foundation is to go “beyond the basics” provided to our public school system by government funding so that Greeneville City Schools’ students will be college and career ready, and successfully equipped in a global society.
