Gantry Academy

Gantry Academy

A Partnership in Discovery

About Us



To provide comprehensive, individualized education that enables each learner to flourish with honesty, compassion, and personal responsibility.


This is a place where littles are free to get their wiggles out every hour and bigs are free to delve into projects they design to fully investigate integrated topics with hands-on experiences.

Gantry Academy is more than a college prep school. We are a life prep school. Alongside of our rigorous STEAM focus we build Human Relations, Sustainability, and Life Skills, which allows us to support the growth of the whole child, including the whole family.


  • Fish don’t climb trees. All learners deserve an inclusive environment regardless of race, color, religion/creed, gender, gender expression, age, ancestry, disability, or sexual orientation.
  • Gantry Academy aggregates international best practices, such as the top-tier Finnish school systems, that use integrated, multi-disciplinary curriculum and innovative techniques like flipped homework to provide a world-class education in the Sciences and Arts to students of diverse cultural and economic backgrounds.
  • Gantry Academy encourages each student to thrive as an individual life-long learner with outstanding problem solving skills, allowing them to become confident and creative architects of their own future.

Meet the Team

This school is being built from the ground up (as in a project, not building construction!) by everyone involved. That means staff, mentors, and the families that join us will be an integral part of the team! Join us and see your name here!
