A Leader in Engagement
While Germantown Academy teachers have engaged our students for over 260 years, how and why we seek to engage have evolved dramatically since our founding. Teachers and students now have equal, instant access to facts and content. Though faculty are no longer in sole possession of the keys necessary to unlock the world of knowledge, gifted ones are still indispensable in drawing our children toward that world. Our faculty demonstrate a genuine love of learning with and from their charges. This is 21st century engagement.
