Gem School is a homeschool, founded in 2006, as a pre-K-12 education option to prepare its students to cultivate mind, body, and soul and live a life of intentional service through students' talents and passions. Based in Charlottesville, VA, Gem School is designed to nurture the human soul and refinement of students' virtues, curiosity and love of learning, love of the world, deep collaborative and independent study, a broad exposure to arts and sciences with targeted development in areas of interest, awareness of and involvement in social justice, a connection with nature, and exploration of big ideas and themes facing society.

One of the students of the Gem School created this YouTube video and had the following things to say, "In response to the tragic deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and so many others, as well as the horrific reality of systemic racism that permeates our culture, I built this LEGO rendition of the fist symbol for the Black Lives Matter movement. Through collective education and action, we can all work towards a more just society. #BlackLivesMatter" : Watch video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGsyl5tc8BE
