Overview

Overview

Gould Academy says

For over 170 years we have built a strong college preparatory school that is based on the principle of engaging and teaching each student. We know that individual students learn differently. We know that the teenage brain is in one of its most dynamic and accelerated growth spurts, as it forms key connections and develops reasoning capacity. Our curriculum reflects that understanding, and our faculty puts that understanding into practice. We know and respect that we have the greatest window of opportunity to make life changing connections with each student: to encourage creative and conceptual thinking to teach problem solving to advance social maturity to present physical and mental challenges to expand a student's world viewIt's the time to connect. We do it in the classroom, the lab, in the mountains, in the dorm, while traveling throughout the world and while serving our local community.The high school years are a critical period, a defining moment in every young adult’s life. At Gould, it is our enduring commitment to connect with each student to achieve his or her academic and personal best - from our first welcome on campus to the last handshake at graduation.
