Head of School Welcome

We are thrilled for your interest in Gig Harbor Academy, a private school located in Gig Harbor, WA, and invite you to visit and get to know our learning community. Our 10-acre campus features towering trees that provide a resting place for our school mascot, the Eagle, and are illustrative of the expansive thinking we hope to foster within our learners. Using our campus as a guide for deepening instruction, we offer an unparalleled educational experience for preschool and elementary students.

Gig Harbor Academy students benefit from an education beyond the classroom. Through our place-based learning approach, students receive a stellar academic foundation and experience a deeper sense of understanding in a way that is inextricably connected to physical place and active, hands-on discovery.
