Message from the President
Dr. R. Lorraine Fulton
On behalf of our entire school community, it is an honor and privilege to welcome you to Gerstell Academy. Our website will help you see why our school enjoys a well-earned reputation as the most respected, influential and celebrated leadership school in Maryland.
It is deeply rewarding to witness a new era of development and growth within our school as our enrollment continues to increase and the school’s infrastructure expands. The reasons so many families choose to become part of our Gerstell family are well known. Gerstell Academy differentiates itself from other independent schools through our vibrant college preparatory academic program and strong values-based leadership model. Our students participate in daily physical training opportunities and compete successfully in a wide array of sports including soccer, cross country, basketball, wrestling, lacrosse, and baseball.
I am immensely proud of our highly competent and caring teachers and support staff. Together, they provide rich academic content and experiences for our students. Our instructional programs are infused with the skills and knowledge proven to produce children and young adults who possess self-confidence, think critically, respond to the needs of others, are conversant in Spanish, and make a positive contribution to society.
The Gerstell experience takes place on a magnificent campus of over 250 acres within a learning environment built on our Motto "Leadership, Honor, Courage."
I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you and share with you in person the remarkable story that is Gerstell Academy.
Dr. Lorraine Fulton
