Welcome from the Director

On behalf of the Admissions team, 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. Also, feel welcome to visit during one of our Lunch and Learn events where we enjoy lunch and then tour the school while classes are in session. 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 October 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.

"Gerstell Academy is the only leadership school in the area, and our children have benefited greatly by its values-based curriculum."

Leadership permeates all aspects of the curriculum. Students are encouraged to demonstrate their leadership in school, at home, and in the community.

"The admissions process at Gerstell Academy was a wonderfully welcoming experience. From the moment we entered the Robert E. Smith Hall, we knew that Gerstell was where we wanted our child to be."

"The challenging academics at Gerstell Academy taught our daughter to think critically and to be prepared to compete in an increasingly global society. We loved the Spanish fluency requirement."

Physical training encompasses both daily physical education opportunities and competitive athletics.

Gerstell Academy depends on the generous financial support of the entire Gerstell community. Please join us in the effort to make Gerstell greater!

Gerstell Alumni represent everything that is Gerstell. They are the ambassadors of the school that live the mission every day.

Gerstell Academy aspires and endeavors to remain a vibrant contributing member of our local communities.
