Upper School

Welcome to Gerstell Academy's Upper School. Our program is designed to provide every student with a challenging academic course of study and the leadership skills necessary to have a positive impact and compete in an ever-changing world.
Our focus and emphasis is on the Gerstell Motto, Leadership Principles and Attributes. Leadership is fully integrated into our rigorous interdisciplinary college preparatory curriculum.

Students will be equipped with specific leadership skills, will develop a mindset of lifelong fitness, and will attain proficiency in Spanish. Interviewing skills, conflict resolution, public speaking, and mentoring students are all important components of each class. Additionally, all students take a separate leadership class each year that provides specific leadership education and skill development.
