We are excited to welcome you to campus as we begin the application process for the 2022-2023 school year. Here are some great ways to get to know GFA.
At GFA, we inspire each other to build a better world, grounded in our core values: passion, integrity, empathy, curiosity, and excellence. Come see first-hand how we instill these beliefs. The Open House events feature age-appropriate activities for children and parents, and provide a chance for visitors to meet Head of School Bob Whelan, GFA faculty and coaches, and the Admission team. You are now able to register for an Open House by creating your account in Ravenna and selecting Upcoming Events.

Interviews and Campus Tours
The interview and campus tour is a great way to see GFA in action, to understand why we are so proud of our school, and to get all of your questions answered. Your visit will include a conversation with a member of our admission team, as well as a student-led campus tour. Beginning September 13, you will be to schedule the interview and tour by logging into Ravenna, starting the application and selecting an appointment through the Interview step.
If you have any difficulty, or wish to speak with someone in the admission office, please email email@example.com or call 203.256.7514.
We also offer a series of virtual sessions with school leadership throughout the admissions season. The series will take place on Thursday mornings from 9:00 - 10:00 a.m. You are now able to register for these events by creating or logging in to your your Ravenna account and selecting Upcoming Events.
