Leadership

...at Gerstell is defined as, “The art of positively influencing others to unite in a common direction and guiding them to improve themselves and their community.” Gerstell Academy students and faculty endeavor to fully understand and put the definition into action.

Honor

...at Gerstell is doing the right thing when no one is looking regardless of the consequences. Students are taught what honor is and how to live honorably by acting in accordance with the Gerstell Leadership Principles. Honor is integrated into the curriculum and daily life.

Courage

...at Gerstell is the ability to act in the face of fear. Not to be fearless, but to learn how to demonstrate both physical and moral courage in the face of adversity. Our goal is to develop our students to be morally courageous: to do the right thing regardless of the pressure put on them.
