SHALOM & WELCOME TO GANN ACADEMY
When you walk through the halls of Gann, you will find it hard to believe that our school is just 25 years old. The same kind of bold, innovative thinking that inspired our founders to create this pluralistic model of Jewish high school education continues to animate our dynamic community today.
High school is an incredible time in the life of a young adult. These four years are about developing skills and gaining knowledge, while also growing, exploring, and discovering who you will become.
From the moment our students arrive in the morning they are engaged in classes, sports, arts, and extracurricular activities. They fill our campus with open and spirited debate, passionate engagement with ideas, and deep analytical thinking – all taking place on the foundation of a caring, compassionate, and joyful community.
Gann’s outstanding faculty sharpens our students’ intellects, challenging them to become both analytical as well as creative, innovative thinkers. Whether reading literature, conducting a science experiment, or deconstructing a Talmudic argument, Gann students learn that academic excellence requires the ability and the courage to ask interesting and essential questions, and the drive and the skills to explore various possible answers.
A Gann education inspires our students to think deeply about what matters to them as people. What do you value and what do you care most about? Where do you come from, what communities are you part of, and for what future do you feel responsible? The power of being in a diverse Jewish community during these formative years is that our students learn to find meaning, inspiration, and purpose in their Jewish heritage as they navigate their personal journey.
The result is that our students develop into intellectually confident, ethically responsible, passionately engaged citizens and leaders, creators of the future and repairers of the world.
