We are so glad you are interested in learning more about GFA. We look forward to welcoming you to campus this spring to learn more about application process for the entry in the fall of 2023.
For families interested in applying in September, we will be offering campus tours every Tuesday in May at 9:00 a.m. Sign up by creating an account in Ravenna, finding GFA in the school directory, and selecting "Upcoming Events". Be sure that you have selected the 2023-2024 school year.
At GFA, we inspire each other to build a better world, grounded in our core values: passion, integrity, empathy, curiosity, and excellence.
This fall, GFA held two in-person Open House events, which featured age-appropriate activities for children and parents, and provided a chance for visitors to meet Head of School Bob Whelan, GFA faculty and coaches, and the Admission team.
Interviews and Campus Tours
The interview and campus tour is offered during the fall and until the application closed on January 21. Campus tours are 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. The visit includes a conversation with a member of our admission team, as well as a student-led campus tour.
For general inquiries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 203.256.7514.
This fall, we also offered a series of virtual sessions with school leadership throughout the admissions season. The series took place on Thursday mornings from 9:00 - 10:00 a.m. This fall, you will be able to register for these events by creating or logging in to your your Ravenna account and selecting Upcoming Events.
