At Germantown Academy, our mission is to educate our students to become good citizens and productive leaders in a global society.
To achieve this mission, we provide a rigorous and exciting academic experience for students enrolled in Pre–kindergarten through 12th grade, a diverse community of families and teachers who come from a supportive communal experience built upon the philosophic underpinnings of trust, responsibility, and kindness.
Our standards are high for intellectual, athletic, and artistic achievement as well as for the quality of interaction we expect to occur between individuals.
We help our students discover and refine their talents, then encourage them to use their gifts in the service of others.
Our goal is to have our graduates leave the Academy as confident, independent young people ready to face the challenges presented by higher education and the professional world beyond.
