As you travel through our site, we hope that you can learn about our school and how we approach education from PreK-12th grade. This is an extraordinary school, 715 students strong, where a sense of responsibility and empathy threads through our community. Since our earliest days in 1925, we have fostered an environment where students can take ownership of their education by partnering with teachers and fellow students in learning to think critically, collaborate, and communicate.
GFA engages students as partners in an innovative, inclusive, and globally minded community to prepare them for a life of purpose.
Partners: Our students collaborate with teachers to develop their voices to effect change, to become lifelong learners who take ownership of their educations, and to have an instinct for self-reflection that builds character and drives improvement.
Innovative: Building on a demanding curriculum, our faculty seeks innovative and effective methods to help students cultivate the skills and habits of mind necessary to excel.
Inclusive: GFA strives to create a diverse community that values the identities, perspectives, and experiences of all its members.
Globally Minded: 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.
