VISION STATEMENT
The Georgia School for the Deaf offers high quality educational and
extracurricular activities that prepare its graduates for further
academic, social and career success. This is achieved in a fully
accessible American Sign Language (ASL)/English bilingual environment,
which recognizes ASL users as a distinct cultural and linguistic group.
This fosters positive self-acceptance and self-esteem, affording each
student the ability to effectively navigate the world they encounter
beyond their K-12 experience. As part of this lifelong learning
philosophy, all staff and students consistently strive to improve their
use of both ASL and written English.

SCHOOL HISTORY
Northwest Georgia’s picturesque Vann’s Valley is the home of the Georgia
School for the Deaf, Georgia’s only residential school serving Deaf and
Hard-of-Hearing students.  GSD was established in 1846 on the grounds of
the Hearn Academy by one of its teachers, O. P. Fannin. A log cabin and a
$5000 legislative grant began a more than 160-year-long tradition of
service to children across the state.  GSD was the eleventh residential
school for the Deaf established in the United States.  GSD has an
expansive campus of 480 acres in the small community of Cave Spring.  The
relationship between Cave Spring and GSD is unique because many residents
and business owners are able to communicate with sign language.

Below are vacancies for the upcoming school year:
-       Paraprofessional
-       Residential Advisor
-       Nurse, School Clinic
-       Teacher
-       Graduation Coach
-       American Sign Language Specialist
-       Reading Content Specialist
-       Life Adjustment Supervisor
-       Sign Language Interpreter
-       Recreation Director

We invite interested parties to visit the GSD website at:
