From Greens Farms Academy

At GFA, we believe education can be joyful. We invite our students to think big, question often, and stay grounded in our core values of passion, integrity, empathy, curiosity, and excellence. Our 42-acre campus overlooking the Long Island Sound serves as a dynamic classroom for PreK-12.

Students are at the center of everything, as known and engaged partners in their own learning. They take pride in their achievements, define what excellence means for them, and then rise to meet it.

Innovation is not a buzzword at GFA. Here, thoughtful progress travels alongside a legacy of academic strength.

    Greens Farms Academy is a very academically rigorous environment. The students and teachers take education very seriously, and we all encourage and motivate ourselves to keep learning and being curious. Greens Farms Academy has a very supportive community, with teachers devoting their time to always be available for students whether it is for extra-help, advising clubs, or attending sports events and plays. I have had access to many amazing opportunities from attending Greens Farms. I was able to travel to South America and Africa, which were ecological trips that broadened my global perspective and increased my passion for Biology. In addition, joining the diversity club at Greens Farms Academy has enhanced my education about social justice and through opportunities like attending the annual Student Diversity Leadership Conference, my desire to fight for social justice and my appreciation for diversity has amplified.

    My son just graduated and I have two other children at the school in the middle school and the upper school. Our experiences at GFA could not be better. The close partnership between the students, parents, faculty and administration makes GFA second to none in my opinion. Students are encouraged to explore all of their passions and encouraged to take risks in going out of their comfort zones in terms of classes and athletics. I am highly confident that my graduated senior is well-prepared for his next academic challenge.
    As an alum and former faculty member, I cannot day enough great things about GFA. It is a place that welcomes you in and makes you feel not only comfortable, but also valued, from day one. I loved the small class sizes and discussion-based classes as a student and always felt known and cared for by the faculty. When I returned to GFA as a faculty member five years later, I quickly understood where the warm community emanates from. The faculty work tirelessly to address the needs of every student and push them to be the best version of themselves. This is of course true for academics, arts and athletics, but is also true for character development. GFA teaches to the whole student and I feel lucky to have called it home for many years.
