Who will you become at Gann Academy?

The steps for applying for admission to Gann are outlined below.

Step 1: Inquire

Thank you for your interest in Gann! We are excited to learn more about your family. 

To begin the admissions process, please fill out our Inquiry Form.

Gann uses Blackbaud for our online inquiry and application system. Filling out an inquiry form allows us to create your online application! Families with more than one child interested in applying should create a separate candidate profile for each child. 

Please note that Gann accepts SSAT scores, however, they are not required to complete your application.




Step 2: Schedule a Visit

The best way for you to experience Gann is to join us for a personalized family tour of our campus. You will see classrooms in action and visit community spaces such as our Beit Midrash (spiritual center), Learning Commons (including the Library), Black Box Theater, and Gymnasium.

Directly following the tour, you will participate in a student conversation and a parent conversation. These conversations create time for you to meet one-on-one with an admissions professional, which helps us get to know your family and gives you a chance to ask questions! The entire visit takes between 1.5 and 2 hours. 

Please note that the tour and conversation are a required step in our application process. If your family would prefer a virtual tour option, please let us know.

Step 3: Apply

Our online application, along with a checklist to help manage the progress of your application, is available in our Admissions Portal. You will receive your login credentials for the portal after you have scheduled your tour.

All application materials are due January 14, 2022.


Step 4: Admission Decision

All applicants who submit their application by the January 14, 2022 deadline will receive an admissions decision on March 10, 2022. 

Newly admitted students and their parents will be invited to come back to Gann in late March for a day to meet current students and teachers and learn more about what life is like at Gann.

Admitted students have until April 12, 2022 to submit their online enrollment contract and deposit.
