PRE-REGISTER FOR THE GANN ACADEMY

OPEN HOUSE

Be Challenged.  Be Known.  Love High School.

WELCOME!

Are you looking for a school where students are not only smart and ambitious but also happy and kind? Where learning is academically rigorous, but also collaborative?

At Gann Academy, you’ll find a student body that is passionate about learning and cares deeply about the world and each other. At the Open House, you will connect with current students and faculty, explore our new Innovation Center, and experience why Gann Academy is the school of choice for Jewish teenagers.

What does it mean to attend a pluralistic Jewish school?

It begins with celebrating the wide range of Jewish beliefs and practices students bring to our community. It means exploring the world through a lens of Jewish values and social justice; delving into modern philosophy and classic Jewish texts; and having powerful Jewish experiences in a community of peers.

It’s about valuing learning and academic rigor, but always seeking a balanced life; opening your mind to new ideas and opposing opinions; embracing debate as a path to wisdom; caring for the most vulnerable; and honoring your potential by allowing it to be ignited and sustained by the Gann community.

Our students leave Gann knowing who they are as Jews and as people, ready to engage more deeply with the global community.

Learn About Our New Garden Project

This summer, Gann Academy launched our new farm project. The ambitious addition to the Gann landscape will provide an agricultural context to our Jewish studies courses and festivities. 

Learn more about the project from Jewish Life Coordinator Noah Weinberg.

“I love the teachers at Gann! They go above and beyond in their efforts to build relationships with each individual student, making all of us feel independently valued and supported—both with course material and personal matters." —Shira '20

"Coming from public school, I was nervous to join the Gann community, but the warm and inclusive students and faculty helped me feel included from day one." Ben '19
