From Germantown Academy

GA offers a one-of-a-kind experience for students from early childhood to 12th Grade. Our welcoming nonsectarian, coed environment invites students to ask questions, push beyond comfort zones, and prepare for the next phase of their lives.

Investing in an independent school education is one of the most important decisions any parent can make for a child. The value of a GA education is immeasurable. We invite you to learn about the unique people, programs, spaces, and traditions that make GA the right choice for your child to realize how Anything is Possible Starting Here.
