Welcome from the Director

Thank you for your interest in Gerstell Academy. I look forward to meeting you at one of our Open Houses, or on a private tour. Interested families are welcome for an on-campus tour, to meet faculty and students, and observe classes. I invite you to explore our website to learn about our unique leadership-based approach to education. The Gerstell Academy community is united through a distinct system of values supported by our ten Gerstell Leadership Principles and Attributes Our students are successful, contributing members of society who wish to make a positive difference in the world.

Please navigate the admissions section of the website to learn more about the admissions process. We begin accepting applications on September 1st. Please also download our viewbook to learn a little more about our school and the tremendous opportunities we offer our students.

I understand that applying to an independent school is a process, one that requires several important steps. We are always available to speak with you and assist you with the process. Please feel free to contact me or a member of the admissions department with any questions. My direct line is (410) 861-4400.
