    Founded in 1850, The Frederick Gunn School (formerly The Gunnery) is a coeducational college preparatory boarding and day school for students in grades nine through twelve/post graduate in scenic, northwestern Connecticut.


    Our mission stresses the importance of citizenship and social responsibility in a nurturing and cohesive community dedicated to fostering lifelong accomplishment. Located on the historic Washington, Connecticut Green, the school takes pride in being part of a community that honors both tradition and innovation, and continues to espouse the core character-building values of its founder, Frederick W. Gunn.
