We're Ready for Tomorrow
Greens Farms Academy engages students as partners in an innovative, inclusive, and globally minded community to prepare them for a life of purpose.
Each for All
is at the heart of everything we do. The bonds we form strengthen, enrich, and inspire our community.
We cultivate a lifelong love of learning and encourage students to create their own academic path. Learn about our Signature Programs.
Our world-class faculty are dedicated to their craft, working in true partnership with students.
We ask our students to consider the world from the perspective of others. Empathy is our school-wide theme this year, and a priority at all times.
Our commitment to excellence — in academics, in character, and in life — is unparalleled. All our students have the potential for greatness.
GFA strives to create a diverse community that values the identities, perspectives, and experiences of all its members.
We empower our students to discover their place in the world and help them to become globally competent citizens engaged in building a sustainable future.

"If you want to see how tall a building is going to be, look at how deep the foundation is. We provide students with a sense of connection, a foundation of trust and respect, that allows them to embrace challenges, to stretch themselves, to go out into the world with wonder, courage, and compassion. We know that our work is effective. Our graduates go on to make a meaningful impact. They are balanced and curious. They're grounded. The foundation is deep."
Our College Guidance process is simple: we want to help our students discover the possibilities that await them outside these walls.

I had attended only one school before I came to GFA. The thought of leaving a place that felt like home was, to be honest, terrifying. But GFA is such a welcoming place. There are smiles everywhere. My friends gave me the motivation to reach higher. That’s how it works here.

We see learning — and life! — differently. We want you to discover what you love to do,
what you care about, who you really are. Mastery of content gets you only so far. We cultivate curiosity, creativity, and intrinsic motivation — the qualities that help you go farther.

His world is an open songbook. From the formative years at GFA to a job at Facebook, music weaves in and out of his life, tying each experience to the next. Rapper, marketer, family man, volunteer, mentor, Patterson sees music as a way not just to fuse together the different facets of his life, but to share them with others. Read more
Being able to push myself academically, as well as being provided with resources, GFA really became a training ground for where I am now.
We take STEAM class in our homeroom. You start sitting at the rug. The teacher explains what project we will work on that day—like designing snowflakes and printing them on the 3D printer. Or building a tower using paper and tape. Then we go to our tables and talk with our teammates and make a plan. We get to work together and be creative. There’s a lot of excitement in the room.
