At Gann, challenging opinions is the norm. Arguments from class continue into the hallways, controversial speakers are discussed for days. Behind the debates are students who value each other’s opinion and care about each other’s feelings. I’ve grown comfortable debating because I know that Gann is a community where people care about one another.

  • Mazel Tov to the Class of 2018!

    On June 10, 2018, we came together to celebrate the accomplishments of the Gann Academy Class of 2018. These 67 students captured our intent as educators. They are ready for the colleges and endeavors that await them; they are ready to lead and serve; and, perhaps most importantly, they leave Gann with a deep understanding of who they are as individuals and how they connect to the rest of the world and to their Jewish identity.

    Thank you to the families and friends that joined us in person or online to celebrate the Class of 2018 on their special day!
