Art Across the Academy is a program within Germantown Academy. We host a variety of art exhibits that challenge cultural inequity and inform the way we connect to each other, how we identify and the values we form as a society. We continue to think of ways in which we can share artwork that humanizes, complicates and connects us. Being a PreK - 12th grade school, we will strive to find the right balance between freedom of expression and age appropriate inclusivity.
