The mission of the Granville Academy Northern Virginia is to provide youth in grades 8 through 12, primarily from the inner city, with fundamental skills in business, finance, science and engineering in bi-weekly sessions over five years. By gaining these skills, students will be better equipped to overcome barriers and assimilate into the economic mainstream. It is intended that students share their knowledge with others and ultimately help build strong and economically viable inner city communities based on free enterprise.
Granville Academy is a national after school program that trains youth in basic business principles. William Granville Jr., retired Executive Vice President, Mobil Corporation, Middle East Subsidiary, started the program.
There are Granville Academy affiliates in several cities, including Baltimore, Maryland; Cleveland, Ohio; Trenton, New Jersey; Waterbury, Connecticut; Prince Georges County, Maryland; North Carolina and Northern Virginia. Each affiliate operates independently.
