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.

"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.
