Germantown Academy is situated upon 126 beautiful acres in Ft. Washington, PA. An extensive remodel to the campus occurred in 2010, which brought GA to the cutting-edge in classroom technology, athletic facilities (including three artificial turf fields), environmental awareness, and energy efficiency. The Wissahickon Creek runs directly through the campus, making us the only institution in the area to have such a wonderful natural resource available to us. Walking and biking trails through the woods, a ropes course including a zip-line, and a Green Roof, Academic Courtyard and Vegetable Gardens quench the communitys thirst for nature. The Nature Preserve, also engineered in 2010, is the focal point of the nature curriculum for our students and campers.
