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.

Warm regards,

Dr. Lorraine Fulton

"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.
