Learn more about our 
Greta Knoll - Alumni Relations Director

I discovered Vanguard when a friend of mine mentioned how prepared her son and daughter were for college. I remember my first year in college and how I felt I could have been better prepared, even though I went to a top high school in Minnesota. I wanted my own kids to be prepared for college, but I also wanted them to retain their love of learning that they could have throughout their lives. 

Choosing Vanguard made sense.  
When the job of tennis coach opened, I jumped on it. After years of working in the tennis industry in about every job there is, I came back to what I loved most, coaching team tennis. Vanguard is more than just a College Preparatory School, it's a school for preparing students for life. I'm honored to be able to work now as the Alumni Relations Director and look forward to helping alumni stay connected to the school that started them out in life.
