The Gunnery

Tel: (860)868-7334
Grades: 9 - 12 | 273 students
Frederick W Gunn, teacher, individualist, outdoorsman, believed strength of character to be the goal of true education.
In 1850 he established a school that cultivated scholarship, physical fitness, mutual respect and personal integrity - the four cornerstones on which character is built.
The Gunnery of today still stands squarely on the principles of its founder.
A skilled and committed faculty leads a diverse student body in a comprehensive college preparatory curriculum, rigorous athletics and a broad array of artistic and social activities.
The values of citizenship and social responsibility are reinforced in a small, cohesive community which promotes maturity, dedication and lifelong accomplishment.
