COME ENJOY GA! Sign up BELOW for one of our Admission Events
We believe the best way for prospective families to learn about GA is to experience us for themselves. We are excited to offer many and varied ways to get to know us better. We encourage families to attend any or all of these events.
Community and Opportunity Roundtable
If you wish to learn more about the GA community and our extensive curricular and extracurricular opportunities, please join us. You will have the chance to speak with a diverse group of community members, including coaches, performing arts directors, college counselors, faculty and GA parents. This event is for families pursuing Middle and Upper School admission. RSVP requested
October 12 – 7:00-8:30pm
Admission Open House
GA Open Houses give you the opportunity to speak with our teachers, meet some parents and most importantly hear about GA life from those who live it every day…our students. The program is designed to offer you the chance to see and feel GA in action. It includes question and answer time with our faculty and parents, Lower School tours and an informational fair, student-led tours of our Middle and Upper Schools, and the chance to hear from our Student Panels. RSVP requested
October 20 – 8:30–10:30am – All School
Perhaps you have already attended our Open House but need a refresher tour. Maybe you have seen GA from the outside but want to learn more about what goes on in our classrooms. These events offer you a tour of our campus so that you can see the inside for yourself. The group format allows you to hear from other families who are investigating GA…they may have questions you had not considered! RSVP requested for preferred date

A Day in the Life
Our admission process includes an official student visit day and interview. Some students wish to visit before formally applying, so we invite them to spend a day in the life as a GA student. A Day in the Life provides students the opportunity to see if GA feels like the school for them. PLEASE NOTE – this does not replace the required official visit which includes additional admission information!
A Day in the Life opportunities are available to all interested students following our Open House or am@GA events. Please call 267-405-7070 to schedule - RSVP Required
