An important update to the Upper School schedule.
Germantown Academy teachers and students returned from Spring Break on March 30 and are continuing the use of Virtual GA for distance learning. Teachers are using both synchronous and asynchronous teaching for all grades, PreK-12. Maintaining a direct connection with their students during several academic periods each day, along with community engagement in advisories, clubs, and Family Zoom Nights, allows teachers to continue to deliver the extraordinary education current families have come to expect. Please remember that the entire GA campus is CLOSED, including the playgrounds, athletic fields, open fields, stadiums, tennis courts, cross country trails, The Preserve, and open play areas, until further notice. Thank you for your cooperation. Stay home, stay safe!
