Leadership and Student Life at Gann
“One needs something to believe in, something for which one can have whole-hearted enthusiasm. One needs to feel that one’s life has meaning, that one is needed in this world.” -- Hannah Szenes, poet and member of the British Special Operations Executive (SOE) organization.
At Gann Academy, we nurture our students’ passions, support their interests, and inspire them to become their best selves. We honor their multidimensional identities, while simultaneously giving them opportunities to learn valuable leadership and advocacy skills that prepare them for life at and beyond Gann.
Gann Academy offers myriad, unique avenues for students of all grades to participate actively in student life and to take on significant leadership experiences. At Gann, our students’ voices matter -- and we take seriously the privilege of helping our students develop theirs so they can make a difference in their local, national, and global communities. When you become a student leader at Gann, you gain the skills to tackle real world problems, find your voice as a self-advocate, and practice the importance of critical thinking.
