Diversity and Community Life Coordinators

In 2014, Germantown Academy created the position of Diversity and Community Life Coordinator in each division of the school. The DCLCs are charged with developing age-appropriate diversity programming in their divisions as well as initiating discussions with faculty about making our classrooms safer and more inclusive.


The Professional Development Program at Germantown Academy strives to connect members of the community with the many different kinds of meaningful experiences that will improve their ability to help GA evolve the art of teaching.
