Discover the world we're building.
GFA’s Lower School students grow intellectually, realize personal creativity, and competency, develop self-confidence, build enthusiasm for excellence and achievement, and gain respect for the diversity of the world around them. Small group work, hands-on learning, personal challenge and responsibility, and an appreciation for the connections among all disciplines are integral components of our immersive education program.
The experience of a Middle School child at Greens Farms is a rich one with a wide variety of offerings in all disciplines. Through immersive education students learn how they interact within the community and world. In addition to the core academic, artistic, and athletic possibilities, we also provide a number of extracurricular options. Fifth through eighth graders can challenge themselves and discover who they are in an inclusive community that embraces our motto: “Dare to be different, dare to be yourself.”
The Upper School curriculum provides the foundational skills and understanding that students will need in college and beyond, while leaving room for them to develop and pursue their individual interests. We meet with students individually to help them design an academic program that will present reasonable challenges to instill confidence and foster a passion for learning through immersive education.
Our Signature Programs have interdisciplinary study at their core. From our youngest students in PreK to our seniors who can graduate with a Signature Program concentration, the Signature Programs weave throughout the Lower, Middle, and Upper School curricula, deepening our students’ understanding of these critical areas, allowing them to unlock the unlimited potential that lies ahead.
