Elizabeth Jones '23 shares her experience playing the title role of Diana in GFA's virtual production of Diana of Dobson's.
Take a moment to read personal essays, creative writing pieces, poems, and reflections from our community.
In the spirit of gratitude, we asked members of our GFA community to share their “one good thing” of the fall semester on campus thus far — and the results are something we should all take great pride in.

Developing social-emotional skills in children and preparing them for a life of purpose is at the core of what we do at Greens Farms Academy. Mindfulness provides us a toolbox of exercises and games for “how”—how to help children feel calm, how to focus, how to work with big emotions, and how to be clearer in who they are—tools for life!
We are so thankful! See Scenes from Week 12 on campus here. Happy Thanksgiving break, GFA!
