Welcome Parents and Students!
We are proud that 2013 marks Greenwich Academy’s 25th year of providing an exciting and enriching summer experience for girls entering 4th through 9th grade.
Created in 1988, GATE fosters academic excellence and the joy of discovery through experiential learning and integrated units of study for girls ages 8 to 14.
Summer 2013 brings new and exciting opportunities for GATE students. First, I am delighted to announce the expansion of our program to students entering 9th grade. I look forward to greeting our returning families and students. In addition, I am excited to announce a new weekly swimming program. Students will have the opportunity to swim in the Greenwich Academy pool on a weekly basis.
I am looking forward to a wonderful summer!

Using a variety of mediums such as paint, clay and watercolor, students create sculptures, collage and paintings.
Students explore elements of dance and movement through the creation of contemporary dances.
GATE students go on field trips each Thursday to local educational and recreational locations. Highlights include: Island Beach, Bronx Zoo, bowling and New Jersey Science Center.
Games and visuals allow students to investigate challenging mathematical concepts such as order of operations, exponents, ratios and fractions.
|READING AND WRITING WORKSHOP|
Students read, write and discuss fiction. The workshop setting allows students to strengthen their reading comprehension and vocabulary strategies through hands-on activities, word study and discussion.
Excitement awaits as students engage in project-based learning. Highlights include volcanoes, marshmallow bridges and soda geysers.
