    GA provided my children with a spectacular education and wonderful opportunities for growth outside the classroom. Guided by GA’s impressive faculty and administration, my children became lifetime learners who embraced the diverse interests and talents of their classmates. Upon graduation, my children were well prepared for college and continue to be independent in thought and honorable in deed - values that were instilled during their years at Germantown Academy.

    Germantown Academy is impressive for its academics, athletics, and extracurriculars, but what sets it apart as an extraordinary institution is the true sense of community on its campus. GA teachers care immensely about their students, and they demonstrate this devotion to education by not only assisting their students with academics, but also by building interpersonal relationships within the classroom that make each class feel like a small family. Additionally, GA boasts the resources of a college: available and knowledgeable librarians, a robotics lab with 3D printers, a variety of computers and tablets for student use, and other notable technological/educational amenities. All in all, GA brings passion and engagement to education, instilling in each student the curiosity and zeal for learning that can help them go far.
    We have 2 children at GA, they have attended since they were in Pre-K. While it's academics is outstanding (look at the data), one thing that distinguishes GA from other schools, even other organizations is that it has a mission statement that it truly lives by. It is incorporated into every class, when kids need to be discipline, at Parent gatherings. We have seen lots of mission statements but we haven't seen any organization that actually lives it in every aspect of it's community life. We are convinced that irrespective of which University they choose, that the education they are receiving at GA is the most important gift we are giving them.
