Feeling The Gann Spirit

They sing. They dance. They play the banjo. They build go carts. And between math homework and getting to the bus on time, everyone has fun.
Students are at the heart of Gann’s unique and warm atmosphere—students doing, talking, learning and saying yes. Yes, to trying out for a team. Yes, to organizing a slam poetry festival. Yes, to helping a new student with homework. And yes, most importantly, to stepping up and taking the reins.

Gann boasts dozens of clubs, including Model UN, Femininjas, Gay-Straight Alliance, Math Club, Mock Trial, Environment Club, Interfaith Club, Tikkun Olam Union, and the Shevuon Hatichon student newspaper. Students are motivated and encouraged to create new clubs and interests groups that match their passions.  
What will you say yes to?

  • 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!
