The online application will be available via the Gann portal on Friday, October 14, 2016.  The annual deadline for admissions applications for the 2017-2018 academic year is Tuesday, January 17, 2017.
STEP ONE: Request Admissions Information
Take the first step towards joining our community by completing our online Inquiry Form.  This will help us to stay in contact with your family over the coming year and provide you with additional information about Gann Academy. Families with more than one child interested in applying should submit a separate online inquiry for each child.  We will reach out to you directly upon receiving your online inquiry.

You may also request information at any time by contacting our office at (781) 642-6800. We look forward to answering any questions you might have about our school and admissions process.
STEP TWO: Schedule a Family Tour and Interview
The best way to learn about Gann Academy is to join us for a family tour of our campus.  After your tour, a member of the Admissions team will interview the candidate and his or her parent(s)/guardian(s).  Please note that this is a required step in our application process, in addition to being an excellent opportunity for us to answer any additional questions you may have. 
Once you have visited with us, we will provide you with a username and password, granting you access to our online admissions portal.  This is where you will find our application for admission as well as additional information to help you manage the application process.
STEP THREE: Apply Online
Your Gann username will allow you to access our online application portal.  From here you will be able to view your Admissions Progress Checklist and complete and submit your application at your own pace.
STEP FOUR: Schedule a Visit Day
See yourself at Gann Academy by spending a morning or afternoon as our students do!  We invite and encourage all applicants to join us during an actual school day at Gann.  Once you have submitted your application, a member of our team will contact you to schedule an individual morning or afternoon Visit Day.  Upon your arrival at Gann, we will introduce you to a current student who will be your host for your visit.  You’ll have the opportunity to join your host for two classes of interest as well as lunch.
STEP FIVE: Admissions Notification
Applicants who have submitted their application by the January 17 deadline will be notified of our admissions decision on March 10th.  Decisions will be made available via the online admissions portal by 12:00pm. Admitted students will have until April 7th to submit their enrollment contract and tuition deposits.
