Leadership Portraits

Portraits of prominent men, women and children grace the walls of the Gerstell Academy buildings. Over 185 portraits of inventors, politicians, scientists, explorers, athletes, artists, and humanitarians, along with brief biographies of their contributions and accomplishments, stand as symbols and role models for Gerstell students from our lower school to our upper school. Students study the biographies and leadership styles of these men and women as part of their academic curricula, as well as within our leadership education program. It is Gerstell's hope that our students will be motivated to lead a life dedicated to the pursuit of positive goals in the interest of making a positive difference in society.
