Field Day!


February 12- 17 2017

For one week in February our entire school community is encouraged to show their love for GA with a gift to the Annual Fund. Contributions to the Annual Fund are a terrific way to support the school while acknowledging the people, moments and memories that make the GA experience so special.

Annual Fund support provides vital resources that go directly to the operating budget, which allow the school to equip students and faculty with necessary learning tools and an impactful educational experience. The generosity of our community has always been, and will remain, critical to continuing what you and our current Patriots love about GA.
