Since 1827, Greenwich Academy (GA) has been a premier, all-girls private school serving students from Pre-K through Grade 12. True to its mission, the school strives to “provide a challenging, comprehensive educational experience grounded in a rigorous liberal arts curriculum within an inclusive, diverse community.”
For the second year in a row, GA will host the Portals Project this fall, which allows students, faculty, staff and guests to connect via video-audio feed, as if they were in the same room with others from across the world, including Iraq, Rwanda, Mexico and Honduras. The project is just one of many initiatives that supports the school’s focus on building character.
Each school offers unique opportunities; chess is introduced in the Lower School, and students going forward have the opportunity to represent GA locally and nationally on the chess team. Middle School offers numerous foreign languages, a current events course, and a visual and performing arts program; Upper School students have the advantage of taking courses at Brunswick School as well as on the GA campus.
In addition to a challenging academic curriculum, the school offers a competitive athletics program with 17 varsity sports – last year the varsity water polo team won their second straight New England Championship.
