Having been around Fairfield County lacrosse for most of his professional life, John Mathews has always kept a close eye on Greens Farms Academy. This spring, he’ll get to coach the Dragons as their new varsity boys lacrosse coach.
Four GFA students were chosen to be a part of this year's Drexel University high school photography contest. Seniors Charlotte Cohen, Ethan Phan, and Jolie Rolnick, and sophomore Bella Bohnsack were among the 100 students accepted in the annual nationwide contest that sees more than 1,900 entries each year.

Today I’m sharing my lifelong story of how dirt makes me happy — giving you the “dirt on me” so to speak. I have my parents to thank for instilling a love of nature in me. Certainly, this was the best gift they could have possibly given.
The winter sports season started where the fall season left off as the Greens Farms Academy teams found plenty of success during the opening weekend of action.
Willem Schuddeboom ('19), Oliver Diamond ('19), and Karsten Rynearson ('22) represented the GFA team, taking fourth place at the tournament with an 8–2 preliminary record before falling in the playoffs at the end of a very long day. The GFA team's only losses were to three teams ranked in the top 15 in the country.
The Dragons went a perfect 4-for-4 in New England regional qualifying berths this weekend (one of just two other New England schools who can make the same claim), drawing games in both boys and girls soccer, field hockey and volleyball.
Timed with the election season, Upper School Visual Arts teacher Jeffrey Baykal-Rollins, has recently installed his latest project, Even As We Speak (Midterms), at the Connecticut State Capitol in Hartford.
There are many new additions to the school this year, including the GFA’s first-ever 10th grade leadership seminar, a venue for the class to learn and develop leadership qualities.
