Gowan Achievement Program

The Gowan Achievement Program (GAP) began in 2008 in Crane School District with funding from Gowan Company. Its primary purpose is to raise the level of education available in the community and better prepare students for college and their professional training. It has accomplished that and more. Our students have attended various high schools where they have excelled. The majority of them have advanced to college, many to highly selective universities. We are proud of the success of the program and the achievements of our students.

Gowan Company is a locally-owned family business that specializes in marketing, developing or processing agricultural inputs such as seed, fertilizer, and crop protection products. Founded by Jon and Liney Jessen in 1962, it has grown markets in most of the agricultural regions globally. A proud member of the community, Gowan provides 900 + jobs, over half of which are right here in Yuma!
 
Rancho Viejo is proud of our relationship with the Gowan Company. Thank you for everything you do to support our students!

Rancho Viejo GAP students and teachers appreciate the companies and organizations that enabled us to take our three day, two night trip to the Grand Canyon! Our Gowan Company sponsorship is the main reason we were able to do a trip of this scale, and we thank them first and foremost. We were also fortunate to receive grants from APS / Phoenix Suns Charities and Grand Canyon Association to enable us to make the trip a reality. It was an amazing experience that we will never forget, and we thank everyone who contributed!
