My son transferred to GA from public school in 10th grade. We’ve been extremely impressed with the academics, diversity, and staff involvement at the school. Our younger daughters will most likely attend there for high school also. Zero regrets- wonderful experience!

My favorite experiences at GA rank up there with being a member of the football team on GA/PC day and winning two years in a row. The pride of this victory was not just for the team, but for the school. We are a brotherhood but also a community. I learned my freshman year that the baseball team became my family and from that it grew to a community. We are more than peers, we are truly members of each others' families. Teachers, coaches, staff--- we all care for one another. My teachers taught me to fight hard for my grades and be firm in my commitment to be a true student athlete. I expected coaches to encourage that, but when you look out in the stands and see your teachers cheering for you; it really exemplifies pride and family. On GA/PC day, we are family! What a great feeling.
GA is an amazing academic institution! The curriculum really prepares the students for further education making most students succeed easier in college. Most students find many of the courses challenging but that's what makes for better students. Athletics used to HUGE here but has become less and less important to the school as a whole. We still have select sports that we are known for and love but others go by the wayside (including in funding). Our theater program is known for winning awards and always puts on great shows. The faculty and staff are incredible. The student body could definitely be more diverse which the relatively new diversity committee works on with admissions. Because of the lack of diversity, there are tons of cliques. Overall, Germantown Academy is a great school and almost everyone graduates with great preparation for the future. Going to GA has made me a better person without a doubt and I am very grateful to this school.
