GFA’s education is innovative as well as traditional. It takes place in the classroom, in the ecosystems just outside our doors, and digitally across the globe. This is an extraordinary school where over time, students learn to take ownership of their education and to partner with teachers and fellow students in learning to think critically, collaborate, and communicate.
Each for All
is at the heart of everything we do. The bonds we form strengthen, enrich, and inspire our community.
A GFA education can take you anywhere: from the salt marsh in our back yard, to a trip abroad. Learning doesn't stop at the classroom door.
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.
