Step 2: Visit

Come take a tour!

The best way for you to experience Gann is to join us for a personalized family tour of our campus.

Gann’s in-person campus tour will give you an up-close and personal feel into what it is like to attend Gann Academy. You will see CDF, Arts, Science, and Humanities classrooms in action, experience Jewish learning, visit community spaces such as our Beit Midrash (spiritual center), Learning Commons (including the Library), and full gymnasium, and see the faces that make up the Gann student body. 

Please note that in order for us to get to know your family, the tour is a required step in our application process. If your family would prefer a virtual tour option, please let us know.
