Graduates tell us over and over about the profound role Gann played in their personal journeys to live lives of meaning and impact. Gann students, as prepared and engaged citizens, enroll in colleges and universities such as American, Babson, Barnard, Bates, BU, Brandeis, Brown – those are just six of the colleges that the class of 2021 chose, and that’s only the first two letters of the alphabet!
The growth and independence students gain during their time at Gann provides the tools and maturity to think clearly about life’s next adventure. Each student is paired with an experienced college counselor who guides the student, offers a listening ear, and shares strategies that best support them in reflecting on their talents, passions, and goals.
Students make thoughtful decisions about what kind of university environments will serve them well, and Gann’s personalized understanding of each student creates a match with the right next step. Since our first class graduated in 2000, Gann Academy alumni have attended 190 colleges and universities and participated in over 25 gap year programs. They have chosen schools in 30 states; Washington, DC; and four international countries. The class of 2021 alone enrolled in schools in 22 states; Washington, DC; and three international countries.
A Personalized College Counselor Focused on Your Search, Applications, and Selection Process
At Gann, students don’t need to hire outside college counseling support. Our College Counseling Office, which includes three full-time counselors, provides robust resources and supports students’ needs to make their best “fit” choices after high school.
