Our Beautiful Campus

With the Wissahickon Creek running through 126 beautiful acres, Germantown Academy has the ability to teach from more than just books. Every day our students take advantage of their surroundings.

Unique Features

The Quad - Cornered by four tall oak trees, the Quad is the outdoor connection between the stone-faced buildings on campus.

The Belfry - GA legend has it that the original bell commissioned in 1778 for Germantown Academy by the same manufacturer as the Liberty Bell, currently hangs in the Belfry tower in Fort Washington.

Wissahickon Creek - This natural resource is what makes GA unique to independent schools in this area. When The Preserve comes online beginning in September 2010, GA will take full advantage of outdoor classrooms, a running trail, permanent overlooks and a working arboretum right on its own campus.

Athletic Fields - A new outdoor athletic fields complex and stadium is being constructed during the summer of 2010. After crossing over the Wissahickon Creek on the Class of 1888 Bridge, community members and visitors will be treated to acre after acre of regulation size fields, three artificial turf fields, a stadium, a new running trail for cross country, 12 tennis courts, baseball and softball fields and five natural turf fields.
