Molly H. King Fund for Character, Confidence & Leadership

With the culmination of Molly King's 19th and final year as head of school, we want to celebrate her incredible tenure and lasting legacy at GA while at the same time advance the people and programs so central to GA's mission. Recently, when asked what she considers most fundamental to a GA education, Molly’s response was character, confidence, and leadership. Whether it is in the classroom, on the field, in the studio, or on the stage, these traits are instilled in GA girls from day one, and Molly herself models them consistently. In honor of her deep commitment to these fundamental tenets of a GA education, we are launching the Molly H. King Fund for Character, Confidence & Leadership, which will support areas where these vital qualities are fostered and manifested including:
+ Scholarship
+ Leadership Programs 
+ Teaching and Coaching Excellence
+ Sustainability
+ Campus Expansion

"Molly has led Greenwich Academy for 19 years, and the school's growth and success over that period are simply extraordinary. She has been a visionary leader, catapulting GA to national prominence in so many areas, while at the same time remaining accessible, grounded, and unerringly focused on the daily experience of each GA student."

54-Acres - Former Rockefeller Estate

Ruth West Campbell, Headmistress from 1925-1955, led the purchase of GA's current-day campus, a former Rockefeller estate, in 1950. Today, Head of School Molly H. King prepares GA for its next exciting phase in history as GA moves to acquire the last Rockefeller property in Greenwich, in 2023.


Throughout our school’s almost 200-year history, we have remained committed to advancing transformative learning experiences for our girls. To that end, we are excited to share that we have recently entered into an agreement to purchase a 54-acre parcel of land in central Greenwich and have commenced our due diligence. This wooded property comprising wetlands, trails, and various rock elevations is bordered by Glenville, Riversville, and Pecksland Roads and is located just seven minutes from our main campus.

Reflecting on the best interests of our current and future students, it is clear that acquiring this property will support our short- and long-term goals and priorities as outlined in our recently completed 10-year plan, while reinforcing our leadership position in the independent school landscape. In alignment with these priorities, this property will open up a wide range of opportunities to enhance and expand athletic facilities, leadership development programs, sustainability initiatives, and faculty housing, to name a few.

Incoming head of school Margaret Hazlett has been involved in this process from the start and is enthusiastic about this unprecedented opportunity to elevate key aspects of the GA experience. In the coming months, and as Margaret begins her time as head of school, we will be engaged in a strategic and collaborative visioning process that will involve the entire GA community.

The addition of this property at this point in GA’s history is a total game-changer for our students and our school—we could not be more energized for GA’s future.
