At Germantown Academy, a purposefully structured academic life prepares students with vibrant intellects to enter the colleges and universities most suited to their interests and talents.
As a result, GA's rigorous curriculum broadens student experiences, both on campus and off. Highly participatory classes encourage students to become leaders by sharing their talents and interests and expertise with others. A student to teacher ratio of 7 to 1 provides myriad opportunities for meaningful learning via group discussion and student presentation. Diverse curricular offerings appeal to students who are naturally curious and imaginative, who ask questions, value both reason and aesthetics, and who understand that intellectual engagement provides a pathway for understanding themselves and others.
The curriculum offers multiple levels of challenge to support the academic readiness of all students and is assessed by its ability to convey content, develop skills, promote confidence, and engender good judgment. As a Prekindergarten through 12th Grade school, GA values an academic curriculum, connected and coordinated across the three divisions by scope, sequence, and sophistication of the offerings.
